SourceTree won't open for Windows 8.1

I have been using SourceTree with no problems for about a month, the a few days ago I tried to open t and it failed. I have tried un-installing and re-installing but nothing changes. I have read that I should check the sourcetree.log for any loading errors, but I cannot seem to locate the file in the SourceTree folder. Any help would be very much appreciated.

I've also been struggling with this. In my log, the first line show this:

Stack trace: 
at System.IO.__Error.WinIOError(Int32 errorCode, String maybeFullPath)

Really need to get things up and running again, and it seems like others are struggling as well. I'll open a ticket as well, but if there's a standard solution, I'd love to learn about it.

Have the same issue with the same log entry - Did you find a solution Matt? Thanks

this worked for me to get it to launch, but when I try to do anything with the repos it crashes
