Ionic 2 Issues on Windows 10

The last couple days I have been struggling with installing Ionic 2 on my Windows 10 laptop.

Here is my Ionic info:

C:\Dev\ionicProjects>ionic info

Your system information:

Cordova CLI: 6.3.1
Gulp version: CLI version 3.9.0
Gulp local:
Ionic CLI Version: 2.1.0
Ionic App Lib Version: 2.1.0-beta.1
OS:
Node Version: v6.7.0

Here is the error I was getting when trying to start a project.  Really helpful, right?

C:\Dev\ionicProjects>ionic start –v2 myApp

Mind letting us know? https://github.com/driftyco/ionic-cli/issues

So I struggled trying many different things and finally figured out that I needed to install git which is needed for running ionic start.

SOLUTION:  Download and install git from here

Then restart your command prompt and hopefully it work just as it did for me…
