Then use, to extract all of them (extract 4 libs to folder "usr"). Then copy folder "usr" to "C:\Program Files\Git".
And it works

The "(extract 4 libs to folder "usr")" part confused me. Each of these packages contains their own /usr/ directory tree (in particular /usr/lib, /usr/bin). Just extract all these /usr/* to a new "usr" folder and then copy it to "C:\Program Files\Git". It works, thank you!

Thanks @timmy-ly,
I edited the it a bit. Copy four libs to the same folder, and extract them all, then copy the "usr" folder to "C:\Program Files\Git".

Where can I find the public key for checking downloads from ??

I found the fingerprint 81B3DB3F32C8A69E80C12875124374AB5E5E584A at the account of Nick Østergaard on - but it seems to be expired.

The link has expired.

A quick google search brings up these sites:

The process should be the same. Download, extract and put the .exe into a directory that is part of your PATH.
Please note that I did not verify above downloads. Use them at your own risk.

Link no longer works, just search for "rsync" in the official msys2 repo instead:
The newest version requires two additional packages to make it work: libxxhash and liblz4.
The packages are now compressed with zstd, unpack them inside git bash with zstd -d <package> or use 7zip with ZStandard support:

Thank you @fotcorn for your note, For my case I also need to download the So total of four packages

  1. rsync:
  2. libxxhash:
  3. liblzr:
  4. libzstd:

Copy four libs to the same folder, then use, to extract all of them. After that, copy folder "usr" to "C:\Program Files\Git". And it works

thanks for your good works,it worked!
