Re: Unable to install latest git version. Claims git process pid running




Howdy Johannes, thanks for the speedy reply.

Unfortunately I have hit refresh many times in previous attempts.

Notwithstanding, the dialog maintains the error condition claiming pid 10128 must be closed prior to install.

I'm a big fan of Git but not a Windows fan in the least.

I have downloaded the latest Windows git and killing as many apps and pids possible after Windows restart the installation goes south nonetheless.

Please advise.

That's a new one. I saw many bug reporters simply deleting the issue
reporting template at https://github.com/git-for-windows/git/issues/new
(and usually then filing only very little information, definitely not
enough to make sense of the bug report), but I never saw this bug
reporting template being used to report a Git for Windows bug to the Git
mailing list yet ;-)

### Setup

- Which version of Git for Windows are you using? Is it 32-bit or 64-bit?

$ git --version --build-options

git version 2.20.0.windows.1 cpu: x86_64 built from commit:
95155834166f64fe9666f2c0a4909f076080893a
sizeof-long: 4
sizeof-size_t: 8 **

- Which version of Windows are you running? Vista, 7, 8, 10? Is it 32-bit or
64-bit?

$ cmd.exe /c ver

** Microsoft Windows [Version 6.1.7601] **

- What options did you set as part of the installation? Or did you choose the
   defaults?

# One of the following:

$ cat /etc/install-options.txt Editor Option: VIM Custom Editor Path:
Path Option: BashOnly
SSH Option: OpenSSH
CURL Option: WinSSL
CRLF Option: CRLFAlways
Bash Terminal Option: MinTTY
Performance Tweaks
FSCache: Enabled
Use Credential Manager: Enabled
Enable Symlinks: Disabled

- Any other interesting things about your environment that might be related
   to the issue you're seeing?

** A so-called VDI running on a Dell WYSE **

### Details

 - Which terminal/shell are you running Git from? e.g
Bash/CMD/PowerShell/other

** Bash **

- What commands did you run to trigger this issue? If you can provide a
   [Minimal, Complete, and Verifiable
example](http://stackoverflow.com/help/mcve)
   this will help us understand the issue.

** Windows git upgrade dialog **

 - What did you expect to occur after running these commands?

** latest version of git installed **

 - What actually happened instead?

** No such pid 10128 to close therefore cancel install **

This typically means that that process existed *at the time the installer checked*. If it was a short-lived process, you can check again by clicking
that "Refresh" button on the lower left.

Ciao,
Johannes
