Why wont sourcetree start after i upgraded to windows 10 creator Edited

I got upgraded to windows 10 creator today.


And sourcetree wont even start.

I tried uninstalling, reinstalling, deleting all folders I could find with atlassian and sourcetree (and that SquirrelTemp which the latest installer leaves lying around). Nothing

Not even anything in the sourcetre .log file


I even tried reverting to version 1.9. Not much success but at least I get a log file, where it contains loads of

ERROR [2017-05-13 15:31:28,324] [1] [SourceTree.Configuration.WpfSpellCheckerPreFlightCheck] [Run] - Removing non-existent dictionary reference [C:\Users\Dad\AppData\Local\Temp\2b52ng5f.dic]

But those files don't exist.

The windows event log is full of these:

Found out after another program crashed in d3d9.dll this was due to rivatuner statistics server not playing nicely with windows 10 creator. Updated that to latest beta and all is OK

Hi Tom,

Did you take a look at this Knowledge Base Article. It may have a solution to your problem: SourceTree crashes on startup

Please let us know if it helps!



Well, no. As per my questio, I deleted everything to do with atlassian (or at least moved it out of harms way) and did a clean install. And it still fails.


In any case, I checked the appropriate file and it is remarkably null free.

Hi Tom,

In that case I'm afraid you'll be best off contacting Atlassian Support about this issue.



I ended up having to disable the display adapter:
'Intel(R) HD Graphics 530'

Not ideal, considering this handles external montors...

Looking forward to a fix asap.
