Issue initiliazing and using git flow - path has single quote in it

When I try to initialize git flow on source tree in windows I get the error:

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

I believe the error is because my user account directory has a single quote in the path. Unfortunately it's not an option for me to change this.

When I initalize git flow from the terminal it works correctly as long as I don't reference git flow using the full path. Once I've done this I have the same issues using git commands. To initalize git flow I use the command:

git-flow init -d

Any advice on a work around for this problem so I can use the interface instead of the terminal would be greatly appreciated

That is an interesting problem. I'm afraid I don't have an immediate solution.

Can you raise a ticket at and we can investigate?
