Composer gives me an error

Posted 3 years ago by Qlic

Hi guys,

I am trying to update a project through composer, but it gives me an error i have not encoutered before.

- Updating league/csv dev-master (69bafa6 => 0a1b535)

  Failed to execute git status --porcelain --untracked-files=no  
  'git' is not recognized as an internal or external command,    
  operable program or batch file.     

I updated composer itself, tried dump-autoload, i even tried it on a different computer, but i get the same error. Her is my composer.json.
