Error on pull

Hey all,

I have trouble getting rid of the following errors whenever I want to make a pull. This suddenly started and I am not conscious that I would do anything different than before. Thank you for your kind help, I'm rather new to this...


git -c diff.mnemonicprefix=false -c core.quotepath=false fetch origin


git -c diff.mnemonicprefix=false -c core.quotepath=false pull origin master

      0 [main] us 0 init_cheap: VirtualAlloc pointer is null, Win32 error 487

AllocationBase 0x0, BaseAddress 0x68560000, RegionSize 0x60000, State 0x10000


C:\Users\Reno\AppData\Local\Atlassian\SourceTree\git_local\bin\sh.exe: *** Couldn't reserve space for cygwin's heap, Win32 error 0



Completed with errors, see above.

Did you try rebooting?

Haha, thanks for solving my problem (and making me feel embarrassed at the same time wink)!!!

Rebooting is a pain, I do it only once every two weeks after Windows updates. :)

For me it was too painful to reboot in a certain moment; i tried pulling from console (terminal button on toolbar didn't work, but simple cmd did the job); navigating to the project root folder, than execute 'git pull' command. It was working.
