Sourcetree crashing on startup

Operative System: macOS High Sierra 10.13.2 (17C88)

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.

 Anything please let me know. Thanks!!!

Getting this same error. Started happening on the previous version, update to the absolute newest version but happens in both.

Have tried doing a complete delete of it and all preferences. But the minute I add in my repos, it crashes and keeps crashing.

Upon further testing, it's crashing as soon as I add a BitBucket repo. Swapped to using the Git-Fork app for now. Not having any issues with that crashing.
