|Path to hg executable||
Specify the location of the Mercurial executable file. Enter the path manually, or click the Browse
button and select the path in the dialog that opens.
If you followed the standard installation procedure, the default location is /opt/local/bin or /usr/local/bin for Linux and OS X and /Program Files/TortoiseHG for Windows.
It is recommended that you add the path to the Mercurial executable file to the PATH variable. In this case, you can specify only the executable name, the full path to the executable location is not required. For more information about environment variables, see Path Variables.
