Not able to open Sourcetree

Here are the error details, we were not able to locate a Git install on your system already. There are 3 ways you can deal with this.

1.Download an embedded version of Git for sourcetree alone to use

2. Browse to the location of Git on your system(if we missed it)

3. Check again (Should you wish to download and install a full version of Git yourself right now)

4. I don't want to use Git
