This is not so much a question, as a statement: I like Atlassian products and gave SourceTree a try today (fresh download, Windows 7). I use it to access a Stash repository over https or browse a local repository (remote is also accessed via https).
Problems I ran across:
I'm unaware of any problems or special features my PC setup could cause - just a stock Win7 inside a company domain, git works from commandline etc. I did not expect these kind of problems with SourceTree. Quite a disappointment. I'm giving up on it.
Sounds like you may have some environment variables that are incompatible. The path for the "not found" command probably requires ".exe" on the end.
Also check to make sure your GIT_SSH environment variable points to a valid executable. SourceTree should come with a plink.exe file that should do the trick.
Seth, thanks for the hint. You are right: it was an environment variable problem: SourceTree was confused by my Cygwin installation (and the paths and variables set there.) Now SourceTree is working as advertized
It would've saved me some hours, if SourceTree gave me some kind of hint about its problems. All I got was cryptic error messages...
I'm unable to give you detailed advice: I switched computer's in the mean time and have another setup now. As far as I recall, you should check the global path settings on your machine: if Cygwin is before your "regular" Windows git executable, then this causes problems. You could also try e.g. starting SourceTree from within a console which has a "clean" environment which has no reference to Cygwin.
Supported Platforms macOS Sourcetree has a lot to offer and, like many developer tools, finding and using it all can be a challenge, especially for a new user. Everyone might not love ...
