Sourcetree not starting after update

I got a prompt to update to SourceTree and after update launching sourcetree from shortcut does not start the app. The shortcut target is:


C:\Users\%User%\AppData\Local\SourceTreeBeta\Update.exe --processStart "SourceTree_ExecutionStub.exe"

but if I go to



and launch SourceTree.exe directly the app starts without any issues.


This is what I see in Squirell log when I try to launch the app via shortcut:


2017-06-11 02:24:38> Program: Starting Squirrel Updater: --processStart SourceTree_ExecutionStub.exe
2017-06-11 02:24:38> Program: Want to launch 'C:\Users\User\AppData\Local\SourceTreeBeta\app-2.1.4-beta-0\SourceTree_ExecutionStub.exe'
2017-06-11 02:24:38> Program: About to launch: 'C:\Users\User\AppData\Local\SourceTreeBeta\app-2.1.4-beta-0\SourceTree_ExecutionStub.exe': 

Any suggestions?

I was having the same problem since the last update. I replaced "SourceTree_ExecutionStub.exe" in the shortcut with "SourceTree.exe" and now I can start it again with the shortcut.

That may not be the correct solution, but it works for me.
