How can I access my github repository with the new desktop app



I was running an old version of the github desktop app on my IMac (v10.9x).
Since a few days this one is crashing all the time :

Process: GitHub Desktop [7815]

Exception Codes: 0x0000000000000000, 0x0000000000000000

Application Specific Information:
Assertion failed: (tokenCount < maxCountIncludingZeroTerminator - 1), function CUIRenditionKeySetValueForAttribute, file /SourceCache/CoreUI/CoreUI-231.1/CoreTheme/ThemeStorage/CUIThemeRendition.m, line 136.

So I have downloaded the new version 0.6.2.
Unfortunately I can’t connect to my existing github repository anymore (name and email are ok in the preference menu)
Message is : Repository not found
However if I connect directly on github ( and I sign in, there is no problem to browse my repository.

Any idea of what should be the problem?



@rrobinet For the old version of the GitHub desktop app, your best bet is to contact GitHub support at

It sounds like you might have found a bug in the new version. Would you mind opening up an issue in the repository?
