How can I address the error message I am receiving below?


I have two computers that run SourceTree.  I have been running this configuration for 3 years.  Recently, I have been having issues with SourceTree consistently asking to enter a password. Even when I type it in, the dialog will appear later. I was able to push/pull during this issue, but now one of my computers will not push/pull anymore. I have matching settings on both computers. Is there anyway I can resolve this issue? Thank you.

Hi there is a bug in the support for SSH URLs using username/password credentials rather than keys.

This is addresses in an upcoming release.

please see for more details

Thanks.  I read that post prior to posting myself, but I wasn't sure if it was the same issue.


I used the work around that Devin Paulsen mentioned in the comments about copying the old version of Putty folder.  I guess this will be my fix until the update.
