I downloaded windows version of source tree and tried to install it in windows7 enterprise. According to your documentation install requires only an account in Atlassian. However, during install it asked for bitbucket account. Did I download wrong version? Can you please advise why a bitbucket account is required to install source tree?
As of version 3.0.7 Atlassian removed the option to sign up using an Atlassian ID (see Sourcetree release notes), you now need either Bitbucket Server or Bitbucket Cloud account to complete the install. You could download 2.6.10, complete the install using an Atlassian ID and then upgrade to the latest version.
Thanks Mikael. In the download archive available versions are 2.6.3 and after that 2.7 but not the 2.6.10. Release notes of version 2.7 starts with Bitbucket Pipelines and Migrate to Bitbucket Cloud. I am leaning towards installing 2.6.3 and then upgrade to latest version and test drive. Will I be able to migrate to latest version from 2.6.3?
Greetings. I tried to install windows 2.6.10. Went through registration and sign up to Atlassian account. Then screen open to download tools. The options are Git and Mercurial. We have Gitlab and my purpose is to get a Windows GUI client. I take it I should download Git? Is this correct? please advise. Thanks for your help.
It depends on what version of Git you want to use. Sourcetree comes with an embedded version (that is the one that will be downloaded) or your can download and install a system git version (I use the one from https://git-scm.com/). You get the question about downloading Git/Mercurial if you do not have those installed already. If you do not plan on using Mercurial you can choose not to install that one.
