Thanks and sorry for the delay in responding.
I forgot what the instructions were exactly but when a new repository is created and there are no files in it yet, it actually gives instructions on how to activate the master branch. I followed those and it worked for me.
Thanks for replying to the person who was asking. I am also having the same issue.
I can you please give me more information on what information you want?
So that I can give you that more information.
This worked for me, closed VS, Unity, and GitHub Desktop then re-opened GitHub Desktop, added a summary and Description, commit to Master and was able to Publish. Thanks!
Oh my god it worked !!!!
Thank you sooo much I have been looking for a solution for hours all of them were only for git and not github desktop and your solution worked !!
I'm receiving this error, as well. I am trying to create a local repo in a different folder than the name of the repo. Here are the steps I take:
Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance!
I ran into this today where my Desktop (new install) was running on Windows 7 & my repo was on a drive mapped to a NAS ( formatted ext3 or 4). When I went to do an initial sync on a new repository it looked like it was having trouble saving some extended file information to the git folder on the NAS. I deleted all instances of the new repo, recreated it on a local drive & was fine after that.
