Repository test is failed when I clone git repository in Android Studio on Windows

Since Eclipse is out of support I am migrating my Android projects under Android Studio. All my projects reside on Raspberry Pi and I was succeeded with cloning all projects on Linux machine. However I am getting the error under Windows 8.1.

enter image description here
Eclipse didn’t have any problem to work with the same URL and host is reachable using ssh client.
What can be a problem?

  • Merge or Rebase or Branch Default In Android Studio? What are the differences?
  • app-release-unsigned.apk is not signed
  • Trying to use Git with Android Studio
  • Developing two versions of the same app in Android Studio
  • Connect Android Studio with SVN
  • Set static variable from Gradle on build-time
  • Create a git post-receive trigger (should work for Xamarin Studio on Mac OS X)
  • How to use GitHub V3 API to get commit count for a repo?
  • How to ignore certain files in git?

    You can use smart github from terminal.

    Try it out on a public repository:

    $ git clone
    For private repos, or to have push access on your repository, you can clone this way:

    $ git clone

    For anyone who is looking for answer that anything else didn’t help:

    My problem was due to 2 users in Github in the Keychain so I removed the password of the other user of my Github account and that solved the problem.

    Good luck

    This is a great example of an error message that is not much help.

    Is git.exe available to Android Studio?

    In Settings > Version Control > Git there’s a Test button to see if git runs properly.

    In my case, it wasn’t visible (not installed). See for advice on how to install it.

    This is probably going to come out late, but I installed a new version of android studio and wanted to import from github and ran into the same problem.

    My solution was, from the wizard that pops up when android studio is first run, go to Configure > Settings > Version Control > Github and then specify my github account. Then importing from git worked for me.

    first check cloning from your git-bash … run your git-bash(if you installed) and then go to a folder that you want reposite your project, for example:

    cd c:/myfolder

    in your git bash (the directory must be created before). after that you can write a correct example url and clone statement:

    git clone

    this example url is correct and i test it. after a while in “myfolder” you must have the reminders project. if this method worked properly, you may not have any problem to do this in your android studio. however i coudn’t because in my location, i coudn’t connect to some server (for internet filtering) and i should use a proxy like freegate. so i need to set git for the proxy like this answer : Getting git to work with a proxy server

    sorry for bad english

    I had this problem before and I solved it by unchecking the option “Clone git repositories using ssh” from Settings > Version Control > Git

    Git Baby is a git and github fan, let's start git clone.
