This creates a bare repository in d:/gtest, not in
d:/gtest/remote.git. You'll need to cd into remote.git to create a
bare repo.

So this message is correct.

Be as it may, as soon as you've initialized the repo as required, git
gui will (probably) tell you:

"Cannot use bare repository:


So nothing gained there. So I'm wondering what you expect git gui to
give you in a bare repo? It seems to me that this tool is specifically
aimed at non-bare repos, allowing for creating commits, merges and
whatnot; all things you cannot typically do in a bare repo.
