runnerw.exe: CreateProcess failed with error 5: Access is denied.

Answered

 Hi, 

For my pycharm project, I went to Setting>> Version Control >> Git>> Path to Git Executable. Here, I entered the path directory to the git repo. But, it gives me the following error message.

runnerw.exe: CreateProcess failed with error 5: Access is denied.

Please help. 

Thanks,

Bhumika

What exact path do you use?

Does it work in the command-line?

Probably, UAC elevation is needed to run git from the specified location, so the IDE should be run with UAC elevation as well. Alternatively, install git to a different location or set it up in a way no elevation is needed.
