This is not a valid source path / URL, details popup empty

I just made a Bitbucket account and started using sourcetree, and when I tried to clone the tutorial repo to familiarize myself with the software, it won't let me clone the repo, telling me that "This is not a valid source path / URL" (Fig. 1). I am certain that the URL is correct, I've even launched sourcetree from the clone button on the website, to no avail. When I click the partially hidden "De(tails?)"-button, it will only display an empty popup (Fig. 2). I'm on Windows 7 Home Premium with latest updates installed. I know this or similar questions have been asked before, but none of them seem to apply in the case that the details show no error.

Apparently Sourcetree had not enabled the Git even though it showed it had during the Wizard setup. Setting it on manually resolved the issue.

I have the same problem. Source Tree does not recognize my repo as a valid repo.

How do I manually set or enable the Git?

Thank you for sharing your solution =)

Use File > Setup wizard... to get Git installed in any of the ways it presents to you, and once you're done with the wizard go to Tools > Options > Git tab and click the only button available.
