Please describe the problem.

When the assistant decides to sync the content of a file, it launches rsync. Windows shows an Application Error popup which says this:

The application was unable to start correctly (0xc000007b).

Presumably it's crashing.

What version of git-annex are you using? On what operating system?

Have you had any luck using git-annex before? (Sometimes we get tired of reading bug reports all day and a lil' positive end note does wonders)

Not on windows so far :)

The page doesn't suggest getting the 32 bit version, it just says to get it. Implication should be that's the version that works. I've noted that this is an important requirement now. done --Joey
