System.ComponentModel.Win32Exception: The System cannot find the file specified

I've created a new repository on BitBucket and now I am trying to clone it in source tree, but this is what I am seeing:

When I click the details button, this is what I see:

I've tried:

  1. Removing the bookmark and re-adding it to SourceTree
  2. Creating a new repository and cloning it in SourceTree
  3. Uninstalling -> restarting PC -> reinstalling

To no avail.

Someone please help, this is affecting not one, but all of my projects.

Sounds like SourceTree is installed, but not Git.

Go to Tools > Options > Git, and note whether you are using system or embedded Git, and whether you have an option to install an embedded Git.

Prior to the issue, my SourceTree was using the embedded Git so all I had to do to fix the issue was by downloading and installing Git. Thank you very much for your answer!

Yep, that fixed mine, too!  THANKS!

Thanks man, 5 days stuck with this!!

I had the similar problem, but even after changing it to system git the issue persists, later i had to run sourcetree as admin which helped me get pass this error.

У меня была похожая проблема, помогло обновление встроенного GIT,

Hi,

Even I'm getting the same error. I checked the Sourcetree option and it is using System Git only. Please help how to overcome this error and proceed with cloning.
