Make sure you're running the latest version of msysgit. The credential API is fairly new. I've tested this on version 1.7.10.
### Why doesn't it install?
-Make sure you're running with GIT on your PATH (perhaps by running from the GIT bash shell)
+Make sure you're running with GIT on your PATH (perhaps by running from the GIT bash shell), or you've used the "-i" option to specify the location of Git

+### Eeeeeeeeek! Why is there a message box when I install it! MAKE IT STOP! MAKE IT STOP! Please?
+Thanks to [Matt Wrock](https://github.com/mwrock), we have a silent install option. Pass "-s" (and optionally follow that with the path to Git if it isn't in your PATH) and the helper will be installed without prompts!
### Where are you storing my credentials?
This app just uses the existing Windows Credential Store to hold your credentials. You can see the stored credentials by going to Control Panel > User Accounts > Credential Manager and choosing "Windows Credentials". The entries starting "git:" are from git-credential-winstore.
+### Why don't I see a prompt for some repositories/remotes?
+This helper is only for HTTPS connections, if you are using SSH, the helper won't run.
+
### I have another question?
That's not a question.
