Install issue with git-credential-winstore


I’ve just been following Martin Woodward’s suggestions around setting up a Git environment on Windows.

He makes mention of your credential helper which I’ve endeavoured to install but upon issuing the command it just sits there, with a blinking cursor. Any suggestions as the FAQ or install guide don’t give any clues? I’m running an elevated PoSh prompt BTW.

I just CTRL-C’d the process after waiting for some 5 minutes and I get the text:

If you see this. git-credential-winstore is correctly installed!
This application is designed to be used by git as a credential helper and should not be invoked separately

See the following link for more info: http://www.manpagez.com/man/1/git-credential-cache_

How do I know it’s working or correctly installed? Will it prompt me the first time I go to access my repo?
