Commit Error message "Please tell me who you are?"

I am new to Source tree and Git Hub. I am trying to commit changes to a new branch that I made. I get this error:

*** Please tell me who you are.

Run

git config --global user.email "you@example.com"

git config --global user.name "Your Name"

to set your account's default identity.

Omit --global to set the identity only in this repository.

fatal: unable to auto-detect email address (got 'hassan.nabil@HNABIL02-DT.(none)')

source tree set your account's default identity

I ran the git config commands, I also ran the setup wizard but I still get the same error. What am I missing?

you will find the answer here :http://stackoverflow.com/questions/14662526/why-git-is-not-accepting-me-to-commit-even-after-configuration

This looks more like a bug with SourceTree not being able to read the default config file rather than the user not being logged in.  That file is C:\Users\me\.gitconfig.  You need to enter the file manually to get that data, then change the SourceTree.exe.config also.
