First of all I am extremely happy with SourceTree and use it on a daily basis.
I updated windows 10 a couple of days ago and this rendered the GUI for sourcetree invisible. I could see that it was loaded and that pagent was active, but the region where the GUI should be I saw only a transparent box. AS you can imagine this is far from ideal...
When I reverted back to the previous version of Windows everything was fine. Are you aware of this issue? If so do you have any suggestions other than avoiding future updates?
Hi Jeff, I'm glad that you're such a happy Sourcetree user! :D
Regarding your issue with Sourcetree being invisible, this is most likely an issue with either your video-card drivers, your DirectX version, or something related to that.
Can you try the following? Keep in mind that it's going to disable hardware acceleration for all WPF apps but may solve the problem:
Set the following registry key to a DWORD of 1, and then restart your computer:
Let us know if it worked for you!
You guys may want to look into this:
It's explained there how to resolve this issue for WPF applications - Please add a setting users can use to disable it for just SourceTree?
Thank you for your response, if I understand correctly you are saying that making this change will prevent further video-card driver updates, is that correct?
Also can you further define how I would make the settings change you suggest, is this something that I need to access via the command line?
(remember I rely on your GUI for git)
Thanks in advance,
I'm having the same problem, I think. Today I tried to open SourceTree and the applications loads but nothing appears. The only thing different is I updated my windows OS (https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/4103721/windows-10-update-kb4103721).
I haven't been able to fix it.
At least for me this has resolved and procrastination is its' own reward. Windows forced an update and I no longer have the issue originally described above. I can only think that this was a windows error which has been fixed and (astonishingly) microsoft isn't admitting any mistakes,
