I'm using Aptana Studio 3 Beta, build: on windows 7 32 bit.
I installed Git- and got it to work with plink.exe and my private\public key.
when pushing and pulling using Git bash - authentication is done with the public key, and I'm not prompted for a password.
When I try a push or pull from Aptana - it asks me for a password (there isn't any!).
why doesn't Aptana recognize my running key agent?
I also tried setting the path the git executable in preferences --> git, but to no avail.

any help would be highly appreciated :)

    Hi Oz,

    Aptana Studio sets GIT_SSH environment variable to it's internal program which handles SSH password/passphrase prompt in common conditions.
    In case you replacing default ssh.exe executable by setting GIT_SSH to plink.exe, to work with Aptana Studio you also need to set SSH_CMD to the same plink.exe path.
