SourceTree 2.0.20.1 only starts when run as adminstrator Win 10

I was having trouble with SourceTree not starting on Windows 10. I completely uninstalled SourceTree and reinstalled the latest version. However, it will not start unless I right click and run as administrator. Is theer any way around this? It never used to requrie admin priviledges to start.

Grant,

SourceTree shouldn't be asking for admin rights every time. This might be a local policy issue. Can you try clearing out the following:

C:\Users\%USERNAME%\AppData\Local\Atlassian\SourceTree\

and reinstalling?

Thanks,

Jesse
