Cannot clone a Git Repo using SourceTree and Azure DevOps

Edited

I am using the latest version of SourceTree and Git for Windows.

 

I can successfully add my Azure DevOps account to SourceTree using a personal access token and navigate all of the repos hosted remotely. When pick one to clone ... i run into the same issue time and time ago. Even if I clone it directly without using a VSTS account:

ERROR:

Command: perl.exe C:\Users\{me}\AppData\Local\SourceTree\app-3.0.8\tools\svn.pl info https://work.visualstudio.com/work%20work/_git/PureApi
Output:
Error: System.ComponentModel.Win32Exception: The system cannot find the file specified

Command: git -c diff.mnemonicprefix=false -c core.quotepath=false --no-optional-locks ls-remote https://work.visualstudio.com/work%work/_git/PureApi
Output:

I can clone a repo as normal using GitBash but then when I add the local repo to SourceTree it run into the same issues when I try do a fetch.

Reverted back to Git for Windows version 2.17.1.2 and this did the trick.


The issues lies with the Git Credentials Manager.

For my case also I am getting the similar error:

My Azure Repo account has been added successfully in Sourcetree using PAT.

Still below message is displayed when trying to clone.

 

Command: git -c diff.mnemonicprefix=false -c core.quotepath=false --no-optional-locks ls-remote https://ABCDaaS@dev.azure.com/ABCDaaS/CompOne/_git/PXXXX-AutomationFramework
Output:
Error: fatal: unable to access 'https://dev.azure.com/ABCDaaS/CompOne/_git/PXXXX-AutomationFramework/': Failed to connect to dev.azure.com port 443: Timed out
