How to fix this GitFlow error

I just installed sourcetree on a new PC and I have cloned my Repository, but when I try to use the GitFlow button I am getting this error:

sh.exe "C:\Users\MyUserName\AppData\Local\Atlassian\SourceTree\gitflow_local\gitflow\git-flow" init -d
/usr/bin/sh: "C:\Users\MyUserName\AppData\Local\Atlassian\SourceTree\gitflow_local\gitflow\git-flow": No such file or directory
Completed with errors, see above.


Any Idea how to fix this?

I see, the special character is in your Username. That could definitely be the problem. Git runs in a MinGW terminal, which is a linux emulator, and it may handle special characters like that differently than its windows environment. You might install your own copy of Git in another folder (C:\Program Files or something), and set SourceTree to use System Git instead.

I am going to try that but I think I already did and it kept looking for the git on the users folder

Are you using embedded or system git?

Tools > Options > Git - look in the Git Version box.

I am using embedded Git, My user folder is called "Sócrates Medina" I don't know if the special character may be causing the problem.

If I browse to that folder I can see all the files there.

Any ideas?

When I try to clone my repository I get this error:

Checking out files: 100% (1855/1855), done.
/usr/bin/sh: "C:\Users\Sócrates Medina\AppData\Local\Atlassian\SourceTree\git_local\mingw32/libexec/git-core\git-submodule": No such file or directory
fatal: 'submodule' appears to be a git command, but we were not
able to execute it. Maybe git-submodule is broken?

Completed with errors, see above.
