How do I install sourcetree for all users?

I installed sourcetree with the windows installer.

It put it in C:\Users\MYAccount\AppData\Local\SourceTree\ so I am the only user on this machine that can run it

Windows installers usually ask if you want the program to be installed for all users or not (maybe I missed that check box or something).

So I want to reinstall it.

  1. I went to add remove programs and uninstalled it
  2. It seemed to uninstall
  3. But when I click on the package to install it again it just opens sourcetree (which I though I uninstalled)

Before I start just deleted folders and removing reg keys I might as well ask, is it possible to safely remove this program in a supported way and reinstall it for all users?

Can we get an answer on this? I have the same problem

Same question, please respond!

Is it doable? Same question here. Thank you,

Bumping this thread.

I have the same issue as above. Multiple developers sharing the same workstation, and since SourceTree v2  each user has to install the application separately (and apply updates).

Can we please have the option for the Administrator to install once for all users in the usual Program Files folder tree.

so it's almost half year since report, and there is no solution yet?

atlassian in %localappdata% is unusable

we have computers, that are shared by developers and don't want everyone to install own copy of software.

I have the same question as well. Why the hell no one is answering this? Winter is already here guys. Long night is waiting for us. Please hurry.

Installing under a user profile is not workable at an educational institution. Please fix this.

So will Atlassian listen to customers and make product, that can be deployed trough central deployment again, like was version before 2.0 or should we look for another product?
