Git Extensions: Syntax error near unexpected token

Problem

If you try to push a repository you may get the message:

"... syntax error near unexpected token '("

Solution

Change the "\\" to just "\" in the file C:\Users\< UserName >\.gitconfig

Wrong:

helper = !\\\"C:/Program Files (x86)/GitExtensions/GitCredentialWinStore/git-credential-winstore.exe\\\"

Correct:

helper = !\"C:/Program Files (x86)/GitExtensions/GitCredentialWinStore/git-credential-winstore.exe\"
