In windows I tried this

with success to use the command line version. And I used Puttygen
(installed by TortoiseGit) to transform the OpenSSH private key to a
Putty-friendly ppk file. Then I use Pageant (installed also by
TortoiseGit) to type the passphrase once when using TortoiseGit.

The same page contains instructions for Mac and I think you can easily
deduce the steps for other Unix systems
