cant find "Git Source Control Provider" in VS2012 express for web

Feb 14, 2013 at 5:10 PM

i've downloaded and installed git for windows.
now i've opened vs -> tools ->extensions and updates -> online -> vs/samples gallery
and in the search i've put "Git Source Control Provider"

the only thing it found is visual studio tools for git by microsoft.

i assume this is not the extension i want.
also i tried to download from here the vsix file and when i try to install it the vsix installer said "This extension is not installable on any currently installed products."

thanks for any help

Microsoft does not allow installation of user-created extensions in their Express line of Visual Studio products.

Is there a workaround or I have to have a non express version?

You can use visual studio pro and up. Or use Microsoft Git Tool.
