Cannot interact with remotes

SourceTree 1.6.14 on Windows 8.1. Whenever I try to fetch, pull, or push to a remote, I get some variation of the following error (this one is trying to push):

git -c diff.mnemonicprefix=false -c core.quotepath=false push -v --tags --set-upstream origin master:master
/usr/libexec/git-core/git-remote-https.exe: error while loading shared libraries: ?: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
Completed with errors, see above.

That one is an initial push to a GitHub repo, but I have a similar error when trying to clone an existing GitHub repo. I've tried both HTTPS and SSH and uninstalled/reinstalled SourceTree a few times from a fresh download of the installer, but no dice. What the heck is going on here?

Are you using system git or embedded git?

@Seth Aha! I was using system git (v2.something) but switching to embedded git fixed the problem entirely! Thanks!
