Git Flow for SourceTree on Windows doesn't work

SourceTree outputs the following when I try to initialize Git Flow:

sh.exe C:\Users\[user]\AppData\Local\Atlassian\SourceTree\gitflow_local\gitflow\git-flow init -d

flags:FATAL unable to determine getopt version

Completed with errors, see above.

What is going wrong?

Hi Steve,

We use 0.9.4.0 for Windows.

It appears though that the issue was a faulty git flow installation prior to the SourceTree install. I removed all git flow installation data and reinstalled SourceTree (after removing all SourceTree data as well)

After reinstallation of SourceTree, all is woorking fine! :)

What version of SourceTree are you using?
