Hi All,

I have installed Sourcetree on my system using my friend's login while trying to install. Now i want to do it with my own registration. but every time i trying to reinstall it just skip the complete installation steps and launch the Sourcetree immediately.

Please help me in solving the mystery.

Hi Suresh, please perform a clean install following the steps: 


  1. Wipe Sourcetree preferences.
  2. Uninstall Sourcetree (if it shows on the App&Features list)
  3. Backup then delete the directory below before proceeding with next step:
    • On Windows:
      • Navigate to C:\Users\<UserName>\AppData\Local and delete Sourcetree & Sourcetree-Settings folder
      • Navigate to C:\Users\<UserName>\AppData\Local\Atlassian and delete all Sourcetree Files/ folder.
    • On Mac:
      • Delete the directory ~/Library/Application Support/SourceTree
  4. Download SourceTree and install it.
