What seems to be the latest help on setting up SSH keys for SourceTree on windows is this:

It says to use "Tools > Create or Import SSH Keys".  That does not exist in Sourcetree 3.0.15.

There is "Tools > Add SSH Key..." and I tried that loading a key I'm sure worked before.  Not now.  Nothing about creating a new key.  There is "Tools > Launch SSH Agent" which does nothing.

I've spent hours and hours trying to solve SourceTree access issues.  It should not be this hard.

The Create or Import button refers to PuTTYGen rather than Sourcetree.

If you are using PuTTY/Pageant you should, once you have a key pair that is registered with Bitbucket, be able to set in Tools/Options/General tab:

* SSH Key: path to your key
* SSH Client : PuTTY/PLink
* Automatically start SSH agent... : checked

When Sourcetree starts it should check if Pageant is running and if not start it asking it to load the specified key. If the key requires a password Pageant will prompt you.

That should then work
