Git template directory on Windows

I just spent entirely too much time trying to find the git-init template directory on my Windows machine (so I could copy my default hooks from one machine to another).

In order to save this hard-won information to non-volatile memory (i.e. the Internets), here it is (at least for windows 7):

C:\Program Files\Git\share\git-core\templates – on a 32-bit OS

C:\Program Files (x86)\Git\share\git-core\templates\hooks – on a 64-bit OS

    64-bit and 32-bit are reversed, I think.

  • cori

    I don't think so, Dan – the (x86) signifies 32-bit applications on a 64-bit OS, no?

  • danmactough

    Exactly. … Oh, now I see — you said the OS, not the application. I should have coffee before I try to think in the morning.

  • cori

    was a little unclear, though, so I clarified….
