Terminal button in SourceTree fails to launch a terminal

I just downloaded source tree on windows 7 64 bit and am trying to launch the terminal from inside the GUI but it seems like its not able to launch the terminal. A window does pop up very briefly but thats it.

Yes. The terminal button actually works fine now that I switched back to useing embedded GIT. I was using system git earlier since I already had downloaded GIT previously.

Thanks Aman Sehgal.

I disabled "Use Git Bash as default terminal" in "Tools->Options->Git" and now it's working fine.

I'm using Source Tree on Windows 10 and was experiencing the same problem with some GIT repositories.

Note that SourceTree does not start the terminal when not in a repository (e.g. fresh install, no repo yet).

To enable the terminal, either:

  • open an existing repository ;
  • or create a new dummy repository : "Clone / New" / "Create New Repository" then click on the terminal button. You can safely delete the dummy repository after that.

Are you using embedded git or system git?

git 1.9.4 for windows. I think its system GIT

So i just checked again and figures that it is system GIT
