flutter doctor doesn't work on neither Command Prompt or PowerShell window?

Issue

flutter doctor doesn’t work on either Command Prompt or PowerShell window?
I have been trying to install flutter on windows. I have cloned the Flutter SDK as mentioned in the tutorial. I have added git and the flutter to my path. But still when I try to run the flutter doctor the command prompt reply with this:

'where' is not recognized as an internal or external command operable program or batch file.
Error: Unable to find git in your path

check the cmd image you will see exactly the problem

Solution

to run flutter from the command prompt on your windows system it requires three things

  1. path to the bin folder of downloaded flutter sdk
    I have downloaded and saved the sdk in my documents so for me path will be

C:\Users\mahesh_2\Documents\flutter_windows_v0.11.9-beta\flutter\bin

  1. where.exe located at C:\Windows\System32

Note:you need to download git from here if you dont find path in step 3

  1. git-cmd.exe located in C:\Program Files\Git\git-cmd.exe

so to simply add these three paths to your environment variables
go to system environment variables
with variable name as Path

and value as

C:\Windows\System32;C:\Program Files\Git\git-cmd.exe;C:\Users\mahesh_2\Documents\flutter_windows_v0.11.9-beta\flutter\bin

restart the command prompt and try running flutter and Voila! you should get something like this
