I have no idea as I'm not in the target audience of this tool.
But I think that if for some reason it will have troubles doing so, you
can always use something as simple as
C:\project>git init .
C:\project>git add .
in the console window and then use that tool on C:\project.
That is, nothing in Git itself prevents you from turning any directory
into a Git repository. Well, one thing to note: the root directory of
the project hierarchy must not contain a directory named ".git" because
it's what Git creates there to maintain its repository.
