Hi Amrita, welcome to the Community!

Based on previous experiences, this error might be caused by Git. Can you go to Tools > Options > Git, and check whether you are using system or embedded Git, and whether you have an option to install an embedded Git.

While doing some research on this, I found a workaround that consists of creating a directory junction (hard link) for the embedded git Sourcetree tries to use.
In %userprofile%\AppData\Local\Atlassian\SourceTree create a directory junction using elevated command prompt named git_local to point to scoop's git location *path*\Scoop\apps\git\current

mklink /J %userprofile%\AppData\Local\Atlassian\SourceTree\git_local *path*\Scoop\apps\git\current

Then in source tree options, specify it to use embedded git.

Lastly, this problem was already reported in our issue tracker and you can follow it here.

Hope that helps!

Ana

Hey the command doesnt work even in an elevated cmd. It doesnt recognize /J .

Could you please suggest?

Also in the first part before userprofile should I give the full path like C:\Users\userprofile?
