How to use SourceTree on Windows 8?

As far as i can see, SourceTree now requires .Net Framework 4.7.1 but that seems to be not supported on Windows 8.

How can i use SourceTree on Windows 8 regardless?

Hi Patrick,

Older versions of Sourcetree are available in our Download Archives.

hey Brian,

 

But why it asks for Atlassian account and why it leads to broken page? Still can't install. Quite stupid, I successfully installed the latest MadCap Flare 2020, which does not want no .NET 4.7 or higher, but can't install your tool, without which MCap won't work. I'm in a big trouble, I can't do my work :((( 

Anybody in here! Can you please advise, which version supports Windows 8 (without .NET 4.7+ reqs?) 2.4.8.0 does not work - it breaks in the beginning of the setup! It asks for "existing account", which leads to broken page and that's all what happens! (I'm all ok with the "internet connection" etc, no issues on that matter), and you page when registering leads to "Ooops..." very great! What should I do??? I can't install the software!

 

Why the heck should I use "Atlassian account" on the first place? It does not work anyways! I use remote connection to the Co's Git. I don't need no Atlassian accounts! You do not ask it in v. 3+, why do you do in 2.4.8.0? And even if I create the one, it still does not work! I don't understand!

Hi everyone,

 

I have Windows 8.1 and I installed the lastest version possible in my case(SourceTreeSetUp-3.4.6.exe). When I tried to clone a remote repository i had 2 errors. This error message:

 

Command: git -c diff.mnemonicprefix=false -c core.quotepath=false --no-optional-locks ls-remote https://UserName@bitbucket.org/UserName/projectb.git Output: Error: remote: Invalid username or password fatal: Authentication failed for 'https://bitbucket.org/UserName/projectb.git/'

 

To solve this I:

   - Desinstall the lastest sourcetreeapp version (3.4.6) and i installed the version (3.4.1).

      o To Desinstall the lastest version properly I followed this webpage: https://community.atlassian.com/t5/Sourcetree-questions/remote-Invalid-username-or-password/qaq-p/859375

         (Concretly the comment of: Deleted user Sep 13, 2018)

            1. Uninstall SourceTree

            2. Delete folders C:\Users\<your name>\AppData\Local\Atlassian and C:\Users\<your                 name>\AppData\Local\SourceTree

            3. Install the new Version

---

      o Install 3.4.1 Version: https://www.sourcetreeapp.com/download-archives

 

And this error:

   CredentialHelperSelector

      o <no helper>

      o manager

      o store

      o wincred

 

To solve this I followed this webpage:

https://community.atlassian.com/t5/Sourcetree-questions/I-always-get-a-popup-credential-helper-selector-asking-me-to/qaq-p/1465880

 

   - To understand the Powershell i saw the first 10 min of this video:

      https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0YDAT_F8Hn8

      First execute as administrator the Powersheel program

      (Commands to introduce in the Powershell terminal terminal:

         sl ~

         sl .AppData\Local\Atlassian\SourceTree\git_local\mingw32\bin

         ./git.exe config --edit --system

)

         Modified the field:

            [credential]
            helper = manager

            

         To exit of ./git.exe use:   

         Esc                           (key)

         :wq                          (command)

 

You should restart sourcetreeapp and it works properly.

This is what I got on the third step of the installation. Can you please resolve this?

Can you be more specific about which version supports Windows 8. The link which you have given doesn't specify the version that supports windows 8.

I'm now using Version 2.4.8.0 on Windows 8

Like Badrinathan Subramani likes this

but it does not work! It requires "existing account", which opens window with broken page! can't proceed with the setup! Is there another version that will work on Win 8??
