SourceTree has stopped working.

I am using Windows 7 and Sourcetree 2.x.  Previous answers on this forum were not helping.  I uninstalled Sourcetree, removed all Atlassian and Sourcetree directories in localappdata and in c:\program data, deleted everything I could in localappdata/temp (there's stilla file in use in use called "1"), and rebooted.  Same thing, "Sourcetree has stopped working.

The Windows 7 Event Log shows 2 errors, Application and  .NET Runtime.  I tired poting the event log entries but was not allowed to do so.

Hello! Do you get a BugSplat crash dialog when this happens? Also, could you make sure your version of .NET is upgraded to the latest verison? Thanks!

I'm using .NET Framework 4.6.2

Not sure where to check for bugsplat

localappdata/Atlassian/SourceTree/sourcetree.log is empty

You would have seen a "Send crash report dialog". If possible, could you post the event log entries too? Thanks.

No "send crash report" dialog appeared.

I tried to send the event logs but got an error:

Fill-free to just attach an image of the error and the details of the error.

It sounds like WMI may have become corrupted. Could you try the following for me?

  • Open up 'Computer Management' (Right click on the Windows 'start' button)
  • Select 'Services and Applications' (left side panel)
  • Right click on 'WMI Control' > 'Properties'
  • Check and see if the description under "General" lists any error or warning

I'm not seeing "Computer Management" 

Under local services in Component Services I see WMI Performance Adapter and it's status is blank (i.e., not "Started")

Hit WIN+R and type "compmgmt.msc" without the quotes. You may ignore the WMI Performance Adapter status.

Ah, there's the answer: it looks like the "Win32_OperatingSystem" WMI object cannot be found (?!).


Check if the repository is corrupted or not by running following command from command prompt with admin rights: winmgmt /verifyrepository. If it is corrupted the returned result will be “Repository is inconsistent.”

If it does not come back as consistent, you'll need to follow the steps here.

You'll need to use "CIMWin32.mof" and "CIMWin32.dll"

It's running--taking a long time

The repo is inconsistent.  I'm going to ask my IT department to take it from here, so there may be a delay in getting back to you.

Got it -- thanks for the follow-up.

repaired WMI with:

winmgmt /salvagerepository

and then was able to successfully install sourcetree.  Thanks for your help!

I am also facing the similar issues..when i checked WMI control properties there is no issues in that.Can u please guide

Hello @Mike Corsaro, I have the same problem but my WMI doesn't show any errors. Any chance that you could help me solve this problem?

Same here. My WMI showed "Invalid Namespace", but the CMD returned "WMI repository is consistent"
When I try to debug it opens Visual Studio, but doesn't show anything other than "The application is in break mode"


My WMI was also not working, but I did not have quite the same errors as above and I did the following:

Go into dcomcnfg and try to look at the

Component services > computers > My computer > Dcom config

It may prompt you for classes not registered. Say Yes! Once I did that, my WMI properties were working again and SourceTree reinstalled perfectly.
