Unable to view repositories on windows version 2.1.2.5

On Windows 10 downloadded sourcetree v2.1.2.5 and installed but after logon it doesn't show my repos.  On the remote tab it shows a heading REMOTE REPOSITORIES, a search box, and + Add account link, and an Edit Accounts link.

I can see my account details there under edit accounts but my repos don't show.

If I logon to bitbucket via the web I can see all my repos.

The source tree help shows a completely different interface of source tree that is nothing like what I see.   I tried to find an older version of source tree to download but the download page only shows the latest.  

I tried uninstalling and reinstalling source tree and here's the thing it clearly did not uninstall completely as when I reinstalled it did not ask for my account details but had them all there reasdy witout asking me. Not a very impressive uninstall, but I digress. Also during the orginal install it said it couldn't find git or mercurial and maybe I recall wrong but I think it said it would install them. I don't see them anywhere after the install.  

Not at all sure the next step...

Although I was already signed on with "basic" apparently I needed to be signed on with "OAuth" (whatever that is) then it just worked

Glad to hear that works. OAuth is a secure, token-based authenticaion method. It lets you login to your account without the need to store a password that could be compromised, and allows you to revoke access to applications (via the website you logged into).

Hello! Can you try the following:

1. Go to Options -> Git and reenable git. It sounds like it somehow got disabled, or couldn't find it.

2. Does your account have a red "X" on it? If so, you'll need to refresh your user+password (right click -> edit ->refresh oauth token, or refresh password). As an alternative, you can always just remove and add your account again.

3. As a last resort, you can always hit the "clone in sourcetree" button on bitbucket. This will open SourceTree for you. You can also copy+paste the clone URL from bitbucket into the "Clone" tab.

"1. Go to Options -> Git and reenable git. It sounds like it somehow got disabled, or couldn't find it."

The bottom of that page says Git Version

Embedded Git version 2.12.2 + git-lfs v2.0.2

How would you re-enable that?

 

"2. Does your account have a red "X" on it? If so, you'll need to refresh your user+password (right click -> edit ->refresh oauth token, or refresh password). As an alternative, you can always just remove and add your account again."

No red X by my account. But it turns out that I needed to logon with OAuth (whatever that is, can't find any documentation describing that) rather than  Basic. Once I changed my default browser to a less secure one I was able to refresh the OAuth (whatever that is) and then my repos show.

"3. As a last resort, you can always hit the "clone in sourcetree" button on bitbucket. This will open SourceTree for you. You can also copy+paste the clone URL from bitbucket into the "Clone" tab." 

I tried this step before changing default browsers as described above, but I don't see any  "clone in sourcetree" in the bitbucklet web interface. Thanks anyway.
