Using BitVise Server 7.38 and Git for Windows 2.15.1 I was plagued with messages 'blah' does not seem to be a repository.
I found that I had to use the gitcmdhelper.sh trick - mentioned here but this is not the prime source of it (https://github.com/PowerShell/Win32-OpenSSH/issues/98). Also useful help in https://holyhoehle.wordpress.com/2011/01/26/setting-up-a-git-server-on-windows-server-2008-r2-using-msysgit-and-winsshd/ and in https://holyhoehle.wordpress.com/2011/08/05/setting-up-a-git-server-on-windows-server-2008-r2-using-msysgit-and-winsshd-update/
Then I got complaints a la /usr/bin/bash githelper.sh file or directory not found. I fixed it by fully qualifying the file something like c:\Program Files\Git\bin\githelper.sh. I didn't need the full qualification on my previous install of BitVise/Git. They are older versions.
I also had to add Git\bin and Git\mingw\libexec\git-core or somthing like it to get the git-upload-pack et al commands available.
