can't start sourcetree after update

I chose the option to update Sourcetree, downloaded, and ran the install.

Now when I try to start (the new) Sourcetree I am redirected to the Atlassian website for licensing.  The instructions on the website tell me to update the license from within Sourcetree.  But when I try to get into Sourcetree, I get redirected to the website ... which tells me to update the license from within sourcetree ... but when I try to get into sourcetree, I get redirected to the website ... which tells me to update the license from within sourcetree ... but when I try to get into sourcetree, I get redirected to the website ... which tells me to update the license from within sourcetree ... 

AND SO ON.

What version of SourceTree are you installing? They implemented some fixes around this authentication in 1.8.2.1 and 1.8.2.2.

Similar happened to me but I don't get redirected and SourceTree does not start. Using the latest version 1.8.3.

Here is the event viewer log:

I am having the same problem. I am not getting redirected and SourceTree does not open. Did anybody find a resolution for this?
