I have installed sourcetree on both my computer and on an external usb hard drive. When I want to start sourcetree on my external driver from my computer it's start the desktop sourcetree. This is really annoying. I want them separated.
From my computer I can't upgrade the sourcetree on external driver because the desktop version is up to date.
Windows software usually takes advantage of OS features that tie the installation to the original computer, regardless of what medium it is installed on. For example, it may store some settings in the registry, or configuration files in your user profile.
I don't believe Atlassian has made any effort to build a "portable" version of SourceTree. You find or create a feature request at jira.atlassian.com. Someone has made their own attempt at making it portable here: http://portableapps.com/node/37839 I don't know whether that will work in parallel with a local installation.
Hehe, I understand that things can be confusing that you need both versions - but I do. At home I use “desktop” version. The external drive for instance when traveling to work. When I come home I often want to continue on my “desktop”. I want to start the program on external drive or desktop whenever I want. When I attach it to a new computer that never has used sourcetree before it want to set up a new configuration but I want the program to start and it’s never possible to update the software on the external drive because it’s install it on the computer even If I select my external drive.
