The same problem is happening to me...

Below I describe everything I tried to do.

After Windows update KB5007186, source tree stopped launching. The splashscreen was shown but the app was never openned nor listed in the task manager.

Tried running directly from C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Local\SourceTree\app-3.4.6\SourceTree.exe but the result was the same: splashscreen was shown but the app was never openned nor listed in the task manager.

Also tried reinstalling SourceTree (SourceTreeSetup-3.4.6.exe) but the same was happening to the installer: the splashcreen was shown but the installer was never openned.

Uninstalled the app from the Control Panel (Programs and Features), and tried to install again. Same result: splashcreen was shown but the installer was never openned.

Removed the SourceTree and Atlassian folders from C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Local and tried to install again. The same happened, splashcreen was shown but the installer was never openned. But... going back to the C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Local folder I saw that the SourceTree folder was created again, with all files inside, including SourceTree.exe.

So I tried to run directly again from C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Local\SourceTree\app-3.4.6\SourceTree.exe. Same result as above.

Then I found out that there is a folder with some logs: C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Local\SquirrelTemp.

So here are the logs from SquirrelSetup.log, when I try to install (SourceTreeSetup-3.4.6.exe):
