Is it possible to install Source Tree on a share location in RDS Windows 2016

This is an enhancement of my question "Is it possible to use SourceTree on Windows7 running in Citrix?"

From my IT department I got this:

We have the intense to use Source Tree in a Terminal Server Enviroment (RDS).

This is not possible, because we cannot install Source tree on a share location, so that every user on the environment can use it. The software installs itself in the user personal location.

The RDS environment is Windows 2016.

 Is there a central deployment option for Source Tree or an other solutions?

Hi Fan, at the moment it's not possible to install Sourcetree in a shared location, it gets installed into the user's personal location. 

However, the team announced that they're working on creating an MSI for Sourcetree for Windows. As a standard MSI this will be compatible with systems management software such as System Center Configuration Manager, support silent installs, and allow the administrator to choose the installation folder. We don't have an ETA for this yet.

We're tracking feedback for this feature at SRCTREEWIN-6935. Feel free to vote for it or add your comment, you can also watch the ticket to receive further updates.

Let us know if you have any questions!


Hello Ana,

I would like to know if sourcetree works fine on Citrix vdi ? We are looking to install it on Citrix environment.



We at use Citrix vdi. All applications are started as remote desktop app. Among them is SourceTree version  which is installed as a shared app. It works fine.
