Sourcetree crashes when I try to add a remote account

Edited

Last Friday I updated to Sourcetree 3.3.9 (Windows 10) (from version 2.something) and tried to add a remote account on the add repositories screen. Every time it spins for about 2 seconds then crashes. If I go to 'clone' and click the "cloning is easier if you setup a remote account" link it does the same thing.

Each time it generate a sourcetree log with the same content:

A second sourcetree.log file repeats the following each time the system crashes

Hi @swlgroup ,

Welcome to the community! We are glad you are here!

Wish you a very happy new year!

Can you please try a clean install? The steps are as follows:

  1. Wipe SourceTree preferences
  2. Uninstall SourceTree (if it shows on the App&Features list)
  3. Backup then delete the directory below before proceeding with the next step
    • Navigate to C:\Users\<UserName>\AppData\Local and delete SourceTree & SourceTree-Settings folder
    • Navigate to C:\Users\<UserName>\AppData\Local\Atlassian and delete all SourceTree Files/Folder.
  4. Download SourceTree and install it.

I have this problem too. The suggested action is too severe. there is too much setup, config, etc stuff to reenter to get it running again. surely there must be a non-nuclear option.
