SourceTree installer doesn't work (Win7), hardcoded 'localhost'. Edited

Hi there.

I've tried the IRC channel to no avail, so I'm asking here:

I'm pretty sure I've 'installed' SourceTree, but the only trace of it in my system now is in the %LocalAppData% (the configs), and when I run the installer again it actually just lauches SourceTree... it runs like a portable app or something. I'd like to have it properly installed like I had before.

Also, after adding my account in ST and authenticating on the web (OAuth), it redirects to "http://localhost:34106/?state=authenticated&code=xxxxxxx"... I guess somebody hardcoded a localhost link somewhere :P.

The localhost URL is correct. In order to support OAuth callbacks to give the auth_token SourceTree runs a temporary webserver.

It sounds like SourceTree has installed, i.e. it runs. It will be installed to %localappdata%/SourceTree

Can you check it is there?
