mbed add gives error "Unable to clone repository"

Hi, I am trying to add/clone a repo to my local laptop...but whenever I run it gives the following lines:

[mbed] Working path "C:\Users\dell\Documents\nrf52832-mdk\examples\mbedos5\mbed-os-example-ble\BLE_SM\libraries" (library)
[mbed] Program path "C:\Users\dell\Documents\nrf52832-mdk\examples\mbedos5\mbed-os-example-ble\BLE_SM"
[mbed] WARNING: Program "BLE_SM" in "C:\Users\dell\Documents\nrf52832-mdk\examples\mbedos5\mbed-os-example-ble\BLE_SM" does not use source control management.
       To fix this you should use "mbed new ." in the root of your program.
[mbed] Adding library "Adafruit_GFX" from "" at latest revision in the current branch
[mbed] ERROR: Unable to clone repository (

I am able to load the mbed os from github.

Any ideas are appreciated.

make sure you have both mercurial (hg) and git installed on your machine. The repo's hosted on github use git, the repos hosted on* use mercurial by default.
