Running drush on windows (I know...) Tried reinstall of drush, msysgit and wamp. It started after running sql-sync and rsync. Incidentally that led to permissions problems on the new files so that sql sync never actually worked but that's a separate problem now.
** EDIT: So, several reinstalls later and I've narrowed the problem. I haven't seen this exact error on Google at but there are variations on it ('git' is not a recognized command for example) and it appears that it is a windows error when the .bat file or executable cannot be found. I have poured over the environment variables several times and tried the windows installer (5.8 just released for windows) leaving it to install the variables in their default locations. Drush works fine in the drush window and it even works in the msysgit window but with this error constantly before it
'mode' is not recognized as an internal or external command,
operable program or batch file.
