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.
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?
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.
Well, just had to switch my entire team to GitExtensions and drop SourceTree because of this, even though we use Atlassian BitBucket Server in-house.
Our team uses VMWare systems which create a snapshot baseline, and each time a user logs off, the system resets. We synchronize the user's profile to our network drive so that the system feels like some things persist. SourceTree installs into the AppData folder, which means that each new user must manually install SourceTree or they won't be able to use it. Additionally, this causes our system to sync a fulll copy of SourceTree for each user. This defeats the whole point of centralized management of software - we cannot control the version of SourceTree used by users, cannot update the version of SourceTree for all users in a single step, and since our security restricts executing applications from a user's profile folder, the users cannot use SourceTree.
Terrible move, Atlassian. Now that we don't have the entire stack as Atlassian products, we're seriously looking at a separate integrated stack, such as VSTS (replaces JIRA, replaces Confluence, replaces BitBucket), using GitExtensions and Visual Studio for client side git management.
This simple application architecture issue that is being ignored by Atlassian may result in Atlassian losing a lot of income if we eventually have to switch to a different integration stack.
