Crash on commit

dantegentec August 19, 2019

I get bugsplat error after I try to commit. Can someone help me with this?

Is something I can fix or I have to wait for a SourceTree patch?

Hi Ana,

1. I was not able to reproduce the error again. When I clicked on commit, Sourcetree would close instantly and open the bugsplat screen. I sent the error files, I was able to upload the temp file to mega but there was also an XML that I wasn't able to find. I didn't take a screenshot.

2. I'm using Windows 10

3. Sourcetree 3.2.6

4. I didn't get any errors beside that.

After being unable to fix this error, I installed Github Desktop and was able to make a commit. Today I tried to commit some other changes through Sourcetree and it went through as usual.

So it's resolved but I'm not sure why.

Thanks for the response and have a nice day! :)

Same problem here after updating to 3.2.6 from 3.1.3

According to Windows I was still on 3.1.6 after updating although I could read 3.2.6 in the help  > about menu of Sourcetree.

I uninstalled and reinstalled version 3.1.3. It's working now, I will wait for version 3.2.7 ;-)

I resolved this issue by uninstalling Sourcetree v3.2.6 downloading and installing the latest Sourcetree (which was v3.1.3) and I was able to commit. I then updated to v3.2.6 and was still able to commit.

So the solution seems to be to re-install Sourcetree.

Note: When uninstalling I chose to leave all my settings.

Hope this helps anyone else who has this same problem! :)

I'm getting the same problem of SourceTree crashing when I click commit.

I'm using Windows 10 and Sourcetree v3.2.6

I can change branches, fetch branches and pull down updates to branches.

Problem solved,after follow above steps.

After uninstalled Source Tree 3.2.6, and installed the Source Tree 3.1.3, problem solved. Succeed when commit and push.

I think the crash caused by global git mercurial username and email that hasn't been configured. Because previously at 3.2.6 version my username and email not appear in the commit box, but after I installed the 3.1.3 version source tree prompts message box to confirm my username and email for git mercurial username and email. After that my username and email appear in the commit box. It works perfectly fine now.


Thanks Phani Kumar for the suggestions.

I had the same issue on a Windows 10 device using ST version 3.2.6.
Then have installed 3.1.3 and it worked!
I will remain with the old version for a while!

I had the same issue on a Windows 10 device using ST version 3.2.6 but resolved it by

  1. Installing v3.1.3 from archives page.
  2. Making a commit on v3.1.3 and establishing my username and email on the dialogue box after clicking the commit button.
    (Not sure if this is relevant, but like a lot of the posters above, I'm a new user and v3.2.6 closed with BugSplat without showing a "user setup" dialogue box so the issue may be happening there).
  3. I updated back to v3.2.6 again and was able to commit perfectly.




I wasn't able to get a screenshot of the dialog box, but hoping this may add provide more info.

I had the same problem. Seeing post I tried adding my global information using the sourcetree terminal:

git config --global "My Name"
git config --global ""

 Now it no longer crashes

Same issue for me, new laptop installed v3.26 and cannot commit - crashes

Going to try downloading older version 3.1.3 as suggested and then updating, thanks

I can confirm that we had this problem on 3.2.6.  We happened to have a 3.1.3 installer luckily, so we were able to downgrade, which fixed the problem.

I also had the same issue as above - New installation ( windows 10 latest update) of 3.2.6 the version recommended on the website - worked for about an hour and then crashed every time I tried to commit. 

 My solution was the same as everyone else - go back to 3.1.3 ( upgrade has the same issue) - I've submitted several bug splat reports but as this is now 20+ days since it was first reported - I assume that there won't be a fix in this version and we just don't upgrade till the next version?

Version SourceTreeSetup-3.2.6 is having an error, so install older versions ( SourceTreeSetup-2.6.10)

Same problem. Sent 2 crash reports in, will try the suggested steps from community members above.


It's my first time installing it on this machine, maybe something in the previous version that's required isn't being installed correctly in the latest installer? Just a guess considering the issue resolution steps above seem to indicate downgrading and then upgrading fixes the issue.

On Windows 10, uninstalling - then reinstalling 3.1.3 - followed by updating to 3.2.6 solved the problem for me.

Same here, v3.2.6 on Windows 10. I don't believe it started happening immediately after I updated, rather I had done a couple things (including starting and deleting a git flow feature branch, etc.) before it started.  Pretty sure I had first committed successfully at some point after updating (but couldn't swear to it).

Unfortunately I can't reinstall very easily (company machine without admin access).. just working around w the cmd line for now.

Julian Swales September 15, 2019

I am a brand new user to source tree.. I downloaded the code set it up and then it offered to upgrade to 3.2.6..  Which I did.. And following your tutorials, I tried my first commit.. Crash..  Uninstalled and reinstalled 3.1.3, works perfectly fine..

I submitted two splat bug reports..

Not looking good to me as I'm attempting to evaluate the software..

Bodin Amornphatthanakun October 23, 2019

me too. I'm the first time user of SourceTree.

just installed today, setup, commit and bug splat.

Thanks for reaching out. We'll need more information to understand your situation, can you answer the following?:

  1. What error are you getting? Can you send a screenshot?
  2. Are you using Mac or Windows
  3. Which Sourcetree version are you using?
  4. Do you get any error when you perform any other operations

Let us know!


John Walker September 3, 2019

I get the same error (just got a new laptop with Win10).

The scenario is that I stage a file and enter a commit message. When I click the "Commit" button, Sourcetree unceremoniously crashes and I get the BugSplat popup:


I have sent several error reports.

OS: Win10
Sourctree: 3.2.6
Other errors: none found yet

I found a way to solve this. (At least for me it worked.)

Download the 3.1.3 (Windows) version from here and after installing and running it will notify you about an update. Simply update if from the old version to the new one and it seems to have corrected the problem.

No crash since with 3.2.6.

I have tried this solution and unfortunately it didn't seem to work for me. :(

Has anyone else found a new solution?
