SourceTree fails to start or to install - how do I remove it completely to start fresh?

I am having the same issue as many others in this community in which both the SourceTree application and then the installer for a newer version crash on my Windows 7 system with a KernelBase issue.  I have tried pretty much all of the solutions that I've seen here in the community forum, with no luck whatsoever.  User.config wasn't corrupted, removing temp files did no good, etc.

I want to remove every trace of the application from the system so that I can start fresh.  Aside from removing the Atlassian, SourceTree, SourceTree-Settings and SquirrelTemp directories, what else has to go?  Every registry setting that has SourceTree in it?

I'm completely dead in the water here, and would very much appreciate a solution.

Hi Mary, you can perform a clean uninstall following the steps:

 

  1. Wipe Sourcetree preferences.
  2. Uninstall Sourcetree (if it shows on the App&Features list)
  3. Backup then delete the directory below before proceeding with next step:
    • Navigate to C:\Users\<UserName>\AppData\Local and delete Sourcetree & Sourcetree-Settings folder
    • Navigate to C:\Users\<UserName>\AppData\Local\Atlassian and delete all Sourcetree Files/ folder.

If you wish to install it again, you can download it from our website.

Let us know if there's anything else we can help you with!

Cheers,

Ana

I did that, and the install fails with the same error.  Clearly there is some other factor at play here.  Until I can install again, I can't use SourceTree.

Hi Mary, can you paste here the error message you're getting? Can you also let us know which Sourcetree version are you trying to install?

Best regards,

Ana

I am running SourceTreeSetup-2.4.7.0.exe to install.  When I run it, the splash screen comes up for a while and then disappears.

What follows is the content of three of the Event Log messages that appeared when it failed.  There were six messages in all, but second three appear to be duplicates of the first three.

I'm also appending the contents of the one dump file that's mentioned in the error messages, C:\Users\XXXX\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\WER\ReportArchive\AppCrash_SourceTree.exe_5ee821e8c887d2b0b8d952215948bbdfbf4c18b5_0fa275d6
