I still can NOT install SourceTree on Windows 10

HERE IS WHAT I'M USING
==============================

  • WINDOWS 10
    • 2017-09 Cumulative Update for Windows 10 Version 1703 for x64-based Systems (KB4038788)
  • Google Chrome
    • 61.0.3163.100 (Official Build) (64-bit)
  • SourceTree
    • SourceTreeSetup-2.3.1.0

STEPS TO REPRODUCE:
===============================
Download SourceTree for windows
Open downloads folder
Doubleclick to install
The SourceTree logo presents for a couple of seconds, then goes away and nothing else happens.
I then tried Right Clicking and Run As Administrator and received the same thingt

I CAN NAVIATE TO THE FOLLOWING FOLDER PATH:
==========================================
C:\Users\{USERNAME}\AppData\Local\Atlassia\SourceTree

I HAVE THESE FILES
-------------------
FOLDER "analytics_gas_upload"
FILE "opentabs"

If I follow this path...
C:\Users\...\AppData\Local\Atlassian\SourceTree.exe_Url_3rqrv0jj2kuth1c01slr4bfdolgb0gsv\2.3.1.0
There are the following files...

This resolved it for me as a workaround.

Dictionary file blocks Sourcetree 2.3.1 from starting up

https://jira.atlassian.com/browse/SRCTREEWIN-7898

Description

"...once when I was using Sourcetree v2.1.11, every time I start there is comfirn dialog pop up said some dictionary file is invalid and should delete or not, and I chose not for then.

today I update my Sourcetree to version 2.3.1 and the app just can not start up.

somehow I found a solution: uninstall the version 2.3.1 and reinstall v2.1.11 and start it up, the dictionary file thing dialog shows up again and I chose YES to delete that file and then install the version 2.3.1 and it starts up normally.  ..."

On Windows 10 and suddenly couldn't start SourceTree. I tried uninstalling and reinstalling. I see a small splash screen and the SourceTree icon reappears on Desktop, but nothing else happens. SourceTree won't start up.

Same here on Windows 10 Pro 1709 "Redstone 3" (Build 16299.15 a.k.a. "Fall Creators Update"). Just a small splash screen and a short progress in the task bar and that's it.

This worked for me...

"...uninstall the version 2.3.1 and reinstall v2.1.11 and start it up, the dictionary file thing dialog shows up again and I chose YES to delete that file and then install the version 2.3.1 and it starts up normally..."

Hi
Please, I am trying to install Sourcetree 3.1.3 for Windows 10. The Source Tree logo is shown, but nothing happens later.
I tried other older versions, but nothing happened either.
No one message is shown
Can someone help me please?

I'm having the same issue. I tried to uninstall, but couldn't.  I tried to cleanup the registry, I've deleted all the Atlassian folders, and now when I try to install I get the splash screen and then get the following log in C:\Users\{user}\AppData\Local\Atlassian\SourceTree
