no sqlite prompt #124
I'm trying to work through the sql lesson.
Windows 10, working through git bash.
and I do not get the prompt that is outlined in the instructor.md lesson. I just got a cursor.
At first I assumed something was wrong, but no, it works just fine from that cursor, there is just never a prompt

I did a clean install (had no previous versions of git or swc installations) of Git for windows on Windows 10 Pro (version 1511 - OS Build 10586.545) and installed the newest version of the software carpentry windows installer and did not experience the same issue.
I installed Git first by following the steps outlined in the swc Bash shell guide
Then the software carpentry windows installer:
Git version 2.9.3.windows.2 64-bit (MINGW64) date: 25th august 2016
Which version of Git did you install? Did you use the newest git for windows?
There might also be an issue with discrepancy between 64bit and 32bit Git - however I tried to use both and failed to reproduce your issue.
That said, I did manage to reproduce the issue by using the 2.9.3.windows.2 version of Git (both 32 and 64bits), by not choosing to check "Use Windows' default console window", but rather keep "Use MinTTY (the default terminal of MSYS2) as stated in the SWC Bash shell setup guide.
I find it a bit confusing that the guide says keep, when default is "Use MinTTY". It might cause the users to quickly click next because they believe that you can just keep all the default settings.
Have you tried to uninstall and reinstall both git and the swc installer to see if the problem still persists?
