"SourceTree: Git not found" message

I downloaded SourceTree and when I run it, I get message "SourceTree: Git not found" with an option "Browse to the location of git on your system (if we missed it)". When I click this option the dialogue box just refreshes. I have checked and do have git.exe installed. Thanks, Sandi

Five years later, and the dialog box options ("Browse" and "Check again") still do nothing.

still do nothing now.


Same here for 3.1.2, both the standard and the Enterprise version. Time to move on from Sourcetree...

Is anybody find the answer for these question

Same problem here after update to version 2.3.5.

Is there a workaround?

Same problem here! It's not the first time it happens. Since version 2.x SourceTree became really unrealiable...

I'm using the currently up to date windows version and this problem still persists. I can't browse to my Git installation because the "Git not found" just gets dismissed and pops up again without anything happening!

Same here. VERY annoying especially since the git version from SourceTree is ancient.
