SourceTreeSetup- flashes logo and does nothing

I uninstalled source tree and I am trying to install it again.  (Uninstalled via "remove programs' in windwos 10).


The setup just flashes a source tree logo at me for a few milliseconds and then exits.  No error message, no log, nothing i can find to figure out what is happening.

I tried running as adminstator, running from command prompt, cleaning up after it with geek.exe, etc., nothing works.  It just flashes something ever so briefly and exits.

Hi David,

That can be caused by corrupted registry keys or by a corrupted user.config file for SourceTree. For the first one, you can find the solution at Installation of SourceTree is not successful in Windows.

For the second one, you can find it at Sourcetree crashes on startup.

Let us know if that solves your issue!
