SourceTree 2.0.4 error

Since updating to version 2.0.4 of SourceTree this error appears on startup. "hg status" is failing causing information to not show up in the repository window.

Looks a lot like SRCTREE-2878 

There's an update to blog post on release of 2.0.4 with details of the fix.

Un-checking the hgsubversion option worked for me. 2.0.4 now working!

did not work for me. i can not even reach that option since it is out of screen, the mercurial error that display has no scroll option so the window become too large to reach.

Thanks for the work-around in the update to the blog post. :)

I have the same issue as Yosi had. Our project is stuck. Right when I need to download all the code to work. How can I fix this? The bitbucket is stuck with a window taller then the screen and no option to close it.

In case you have my issue and can not see the "OK" button at the bottom, you might need to change resolution (system preferences -> Displays -> Display Tab: "Scaled" resolution radio button : change it until you can see the button.

Guy , software should have a scrollable view so it will not have this effect , but I guess they did not check if instead of version string there is a stack trace of crash. I can see that when i switch to system mercurial every thing is working ok with version 3.2.1 in the crash trace it specify that it can not work with python 2.6.9 because it was compiled with 2.7.5. python 2.6.9 is the default apple version while I have 2.7.8 installed for me , Sourcetree does not run with settings so it access the apple old version. How do I set my python 2.7.8 as the default for system wide apps ?

google is my friend :) found the solution : in terminal write : defaults write com.apple.versioner.python Version 2.7 then embedded works

I was referring to a Mac version of sourcetree. Once I addressed the resolution not being enough to see closing button, following the uncheck hgsubversion fix did the trick for me.

Un-checking the hgsubversion option worked for me as well.

Me too. Same error and blank window.

Same problem here since updating to 2.0.4

Same problem going form 2.0.2 to 2.0.4!

Went back to 2.0.3 and error disappears. Phew!

I'm getting the same error - just updated to 2.0.4 - the git repos work OK, the mercurial ones re banjaxed, at least in sourcetree - hg log and hg status from the command line work just fine

Same thing on 2.0.4

Had the same issue with Sourcetree 2.0.3 using external mercurial 3.2.3 install No improvements since with 2.0.4, using either embedded or external mercurial install

Also found a temp fix by downgrading to 2.0.2 using embedded mercurial 2.2.2

Dear Atlassian, I appreciate your effort to quickly solve the security issue, yet I don't think making the app unusable is a proper solution.

Just to make this gain more momentum: same here, independently of whether internal or external (3.2.3+20141218) hg install is used. Command line client works fine. No issue with repos.

Same here. Will try a downgrade to 2.0.3

Same here... downgrade to 2.0.3

Thought it was just me, got this as soon as I upgraded to 2.0.4. Will be downgrading for now.

Read the anser from @Rp Subhub - unchecking hgsubversion plugin is a fix

same here and what is even better: the error window is to large that it is not possible to get to the ok/close/whatever button.
