I tried to remove source tree because it was extremely slow. I think in order to copy files onto my dev environment, I actually checked them out causing it to be slow.
None the less, now I cannot reinstall. It keeps saying there is a newer version installed and will not install.
I rebooted in safe mode and searched for files and removed them all, but still cannot install.
The set up wizard says "SourceTree setup ended prematurely because of an error. Your system has not been modified. To install this program at a later time, please run the installation again. Click the Finish button to exit the Setup Wizard."
In Windows, removing files is rarely a safe way to uninstall a program. Installers will often register the application other places in the OS (like the registry). The sourcetree installer may be checking that, and trying to enter some sort of update mode, which fails when it can't find files.
I don't think I can help much here besides identifying the problem. Maybe SourceTree still shows up in the add/remove programs dialog?
