Are you trying to install in an offline environment? If so, that's not supported since 1.8.x, but some people have figured out workarounds.

Did you find the answer to this problem? I'm seeing similar issues.

Hi @Seth, can you share what that workaround is?  Having the same problem.

I downloaded the latest windows update and it fixed the problem.

Windows is up to date. And still facing same issue. 

@Seth can you share if there is any other workaround as we are stuck ?

Hi @Dillon Hillegeist - could you provide some information on what updates you have?

The latest update I have is the security update for Windows 7 for x64-based Systems (KB3146706)

its working fine after windows update

Latest windows update resolved the sourcetree installation issue

We had to force update Windows to resolve the issue. 

Ya that's we had to do too.

I am running on Windows 8 with the latest windows updates. But I still cannot install source true. It still gives me the same issue. I am trying to install SourceTree 1.8.3. Anybody can help?

Did you try forcing an update? Another thing you could check and see is if your firewall is blocking the download. Sorry I'm still running on Windows 7 so this might be a totally different issue.

Yes, I did force Windows update and shows no updates available. And I can install all other software, just not this one. sad
