Eclipse won't load .gitconfig [message #1775238] Thu, 26 October 2017 15:38 Go to next message

I am currently running Eclipse Oxygen.1a Release (4.7.1a) on Windows 10 and having some serious issues with getting the Git plugin to work properly.

My home path is currently set to a network drive as shown below:


Unfortunately, the Git plugin refuses to load my .gitconfig, throwing the following error:

java.nio.file.InvalidPathException: Illegal char <:> at index 3: .\H:\.gitconfig

I'm guessing I can set the user home path in vmargs in the eclipse.ini, but I'm curious if there is any other workaround to resolve this issue?

Which EGit/JGit versions are you using ? Open "Eclipse > About Eclipse > Installation Details > Features" to find the versions you have installed.

Can you post the complete stack trace which should be available in the error log (open view "Error log" to show it) ?
