Trying to make git repo in Splunk files, but git does not work?

I am trying to see if I could make a git repository in the Splunk files to have git realize when a dashboard has been changed or when an alert was made, however I keep on getting the following error:
"Could not initialize a new repository. libgit2 returned: failed to make directory 'C:\Program Files\Splunk\etc\apps\APPNAME/.git': Access is denied."

Is there a way to get a git repo in the Splunk files?

If not, is there any other way to recognize when an app has been altered (i.e when a dashboard or alert was made/edited), distribute said app to different servers, and replace the already existing app with the edited one? (or at least some form of source control)

NOTE: I have stopped Splunk and tried to create the file as Splunk was stopped, yet it didn't work. This is Splunk version 7.1.1.

Thanks for the help,
hunterpj
