Visual Studio 2013 libgit2 error
I'm trying to set up git with VS2013 by following these instructions:
However in Home | Unsynced Commits, I get the following error:
An error occurred. Detailed message: An error was raised by libgit2. Category = Unknown (Error). No error message has been provided by the native library
Considering that the error message is very unclear, I don't know where to start troubleshooting.
EDIT: The error occurs not only with Unsynced Commits, but with Changes and Branches as well.

I was also getting the libgit2 error. It was an issue because of "Initialize this repository with a README.md".
For removing the solution from source control, close Visual Studio and delete the .gitattributes, .gitignore and ".git" folder. Now reopen the solution and try again with above mentioned answer's method.
