ssh-agent fails unless Sourcetree is ran as Administrator

Joel Santos March 31, 2022

I'm running the latest versions of Sourcetree, Git, on Windows 11, with Windows OpenSSH. SourceTree is set to use external GIT and OpenSSH


When I open Sourcetree, and every time I close the Options Dialog, I get this error message

Unless I run Sourcetree as Admin, but obviously is quite annoying to get the UAC every time I run Sourcetree. Is that the intended behaviour?

Using Putty/Pageant doesn't trigger the error (as it doesn't rely in OpenSSH) but there's no difference in running external or embedded Git, both require ST to be run in Admin mode
