Can't locate kiln repo

I'm trying to clone repos in the form of but keep receiving the following:

System.ComponentModel.Win32Exception: The System cannot find the file specified

fatal: repository  '' not found.


Now, I've tried prefixing my username (which is not an email) like so - but that doesn't work either. 

I'm positive of my username and the repo path because a normal clone command works as expected:

hg clone

realm: kiln
user: username
password: **********


Is there some setup I'm missing in the Sourcetree client? None of the seemingly related questions ( here, here, and here) have worked for me thus far.

Lastly, please remember to mention which Windows version are you using.

Best regards,

Normally, I use TortoiseHg ( but I was hoping to be able to use Sourcetree as well.
