Sourcetree crashing on startup

Operative System: macOS High Sierra 10.13.2 (17C88)

Issue starting date: 01-06-2018

Sourcetree version: 2.6.3a


Sourcetree app is crashing on startup even though I've upgraded it to the latest (2.6.3a)

I understand this issue had happened before due to some xCode distributions but I haven't updated my version in the last few days and yesterday it was working like a charm.

Anyone who could help me I would really appreciate it. Thanks!

Please post the crash report so we have context for what the crash actually is. Thanks.

Hi @Brian Ganninger, thanks for your comment. Where can I take the crash report from?

Thanks in advance for your help!

You'll find them in the sidebar of Console.

What console do you refer to? I can't open the app at all.


/Applications/Utilities/ (or type Console in Spotlight Search)

I think this would be the report.
