Various commands, including external diffing crashes the Git executable. The commands don't run. The popup dialog is:
git.exe - System Error. "The program can't start because libiconv-2.dll is missing from your computer. Try reinstalling the program to fix this problem."
I have tried configuring SourceTree to use the embedded and system Git with no differences. System Git is Msysgit 1.9.5.
This has started happening for me as well...
Basically cannot use SourceTree on Windows anymore... I have reinstalled several times, configured to use Embedded git and not Embedded... Reinstalled git....
Git, Githuib both work..... but SourceTree just gives error
Not sure what else to try.,
But what is the point of Embedded Git in SourceTree if it relies on external git?
I had the same problems and I tried all the possibilities copying the dll all around. SourceTree version 1.6.25. I never changed the embedded/system Git version option. I think it happens because I unistalled old Git (version 1.8.3) with the curent one (I also have TortoiseGit correctly installed). Now my Git is 2.6.3. At the end I solved the problem with this: Tools >> Options >> Git >> Update embedded Git. It pass from 1.9.5 to 2.6.1. and now it works. Alessandro
