FreeRADIUS isn't written for Windows, and none of us use Windows, so if
you want to explore the unknown you're on your own...

Assuming you've made no changes (this will completely wipe out any
local updates) try

$ git clean -fdx
$ git reset --hard HEAD

then do your checkout again. Or just wipe the whole directory and clone
it again.

Or just install Linux. It's free, and FreeRADIUS works.
