Hi All,

I was able to fix the issue by first installing GiT 2.11.0 on my machine and then using option from Tools -> Options -> Git -> Enable Git support

and it worked for me..

seems Installation was not able to download and install Git on my machine due to office policy.

Hi Vishnu, we had a bug filed about it at SRCTREEWIN-6890. Can you try if any of the suggestions there helps you?

If not, could you try re-running the process immediately after a rebooting your computer? It could be that one of the files in the target folder was already in use (git.exe, ssh-agent.exe, sh.exe)

Lastly, don't forget to provide which version of SourceTree and OS are you using.

Best regards,


Thanks Ana for the pointers Tried some ways like un-installing and re-running, moving SquirrelTemp to diff location however didn't work out

The sourcetree version I am installing is and OS version is windows 10 enterprise 64 bit.

Let me know if any more inputs. Thanks again.
