I have followed the instructions for installing via composer.
using the command: composer create-project silverstripe/installer C:\xampp\htdocs\vhosts\mysite
gives me a mysite folder with some content, but no framework
and in command I have this message:
Failed to clone, git was not found, check that it is installed and in your path env.

I used the Composer installer and there was no mention of git..
Do I need to install git separately?
How do I put it in my path?
