After upgrading to Sourcetree 3.2.6 getting error as GIT not found

Hello Team,


I just have updated SourceTree (3.2.6)and installed updated version of GIT .  Post this update I am unable to open specified repository which are checkedout previously .

I am getting error GIT not Found.Even when tried with the option of Browsing the location on local machine it is not proceeding further . I have tried uninstalling and installation couple of times but still no luck.

Can anyone help me over here.

I am using the laptop (running Windows 10 x64).

Hi Paresh, welcome to the Community!

I see your install of Sourcetree is having trouble to find Git. Can you switch from system git to embedded git and see what happens?

Sourcetree will try to find and use an existing Git installation rather than download and install its own local copy.

It does this by checking the PATH, looking in some standard locations, e.g. c:\program files (x86)\Git or asking the OS to find it.

If it finds a git.exe through any of those methods it tries to run

>git version 

and parsing the output, if it matches a supported version it will configure itself to use that Git installation.

If it can't find a git.exe it will prompt you to try and look for it.

Where is your Git installed?

It sounds like Sourcetree might be finding the installation bur for some reason the git version call is failing.

Is there anything in the %localappdata%/Atlassian/Sourcetree/sourcetree.log showing errors when trying to run git version ?

Let us know!

Hello Ana,


When tried with embedded version initially it failed but after restart of SourceTree it worked all fine.


Thanks for the help :)
