Getting Less Preprocessor working on Git Bash on Windows?

Hi there,

I don't know if anyone can help me! I use Ubuntu at work, so getting Less working on there is relatively easy.

However, at home I'm on Windows 8, and I'm having a hard time getting Less working. I've installed node.js, and installed Less using npm from within the nodejs directory, however I cannot access the lessc command anywhere but inside that directory. I'm not entirely sure how it all works on Windows, but I just want to be able to use lessc file > file in the terminal within my Xampp directories...!!

Thanks if anyone can offer some advice! I've got SASS working, but I really need Less.
