I double-click the sourcetree icon (blue circle, tree inside). I wait....nothing shows up. I kill the process. I try again. If I get something it is an error message about not being able to read the gcmw.zip file.

The messages says "Failed to extract file - unable to extract D:\Users\<username>\AppData\Local\Atlassian\SourceTree\gcmw.zip

If you're still having trouble getting Sourcetree to open, let us know which Sourcetree and OS version are you using and send us a screenshot of the error message.
