Still a problem trying to get to 2.18.0. Fixed by opening Task Manager and killing ssh. Installed sweetly after that. Insane error on Atlassian's part, moreso that it's gone on so long.

this worked for me.

Confirmed on 1.6.20 as well: http://i.imgur.com/uC2YC9Q.png

Occurs in version 1.6.25.0 with downloaded PortableGit-2.6.1-32-bit.7z.exe

Solved with method at https://jira.atlassian.com/browse/SRCTREEWIN-2962

still same issue on Sourcetree 2.1.2.5, runnning windows 10.

Killing pageant.exe, ssh-agent.exe, git.exe etc, does not help.

Commented the mentioned issue also.
