You don't say what OS you are running. 32 or 64 bit? Possibly you are trying to install a 64 bit in a 32 bit OS.
On the download page, there is also an option to try Git for Windows Portable ("thumbdrive edition")

You are combining setup info with a batch file. In the batch file, remove everything between the lines:

msiexec.exe /i C:\Users\rsp\Desktop\Git-2.10.2.msi /qn
and
pause

Run the batch file.
