Alternative to install arduino-esp32 for Arduino IDE (Windows)

Same as in the original instructions, you need to have Arduino IDE and Git already installed on your computer.

In Arduino IDE open the preferences. On the top you see “Sketchbook location”.
For me that is “B:\Arduino-Dev”.
Open git bash and go to your Sketchbook location, create a folder hardware and inside hardware create a folder espressif. This is folder where you start to clone arduino-esp32. See a list of commands below.
For me the folder structure looks like:

You need to replace B:\Arduino-Dev with your sketchbook location.
Then use git bash instead of the git GUI.

after cloning is finished do

That should install the stuff in the correct place.
Important is to get the correct sketchbook folder from your Arduino-IDE preferences!
