Win: custom action output not shown

Running a .bat or .sh from as custom action (e.g. the .bat file below) does not show in the SourceTree command output pop-up. Instead a Command Prompt window pops up showing the script. How do I get this output in the Sourcetree output window?

I've enabled the Show Full Output. Below is what the test bat script looks like. I expect the output to show "hi" and "by" but it just says <script name> Completed successfully.


@echo off
echo "hi"
sleep 2
echo "by"


Does anyone know why the output is not shown? Am I doing something wrong?


BTW Runnign sourcetree on Windows 10 (x64) machine.

I can't reproduce this issue at the moment.

My batch file

@echo off
echo "hi"
echo "bye"


It is then configured like this



Whihc then runs like this:

Now mine is also working. Same configuration as yours @Michael Minns

Not sure what I did different this time, it should be the exact same environment as earlier...
I asked this because I'm adding some custom actions :) in a git repo and want to show/log some stuff from shell files (ran on windows using the git bash) and script location as first argument.

Anyhoo, thanks for the test configuration.
