Sourcetree: SSH agent does not launch

I just installed Sourcetree and want to launch Pageant, but when I choose 'Launch SSH Agent' from the Tools menu, nothing happens. Any ideas?

That actually means it's already running, take a look in your system tray.

Thanks, Steve!!!

thanks much Steve, was ther for a while trying to figure this out

I am having the same issue and as far as I can tell, SSH Agent is not running at all.

I was having the same issue, but I found out that if you to go Tools/Options/General, under SSH Client Configuration, select the SSH Client to PuTTY / Plink, then try to launch the SSH Agent again.

Looks like you cannot mix SSH Client configurations.
