Winclone doesn't 'do' anything

I’m running Catalina and I’m trying to make an image of my bootcamp drive to a NAS. I’m using winclone 8.0.1. I go through the wizard and everything is fine, but then when it starts to create an image, it doesn’t do anything. No cpu usage, no drive usage, no network usage, no progression on the bar. Nothing. And when I try to cancel it also doesn’t cancel. The only way to stop it is to force quit it from task manager. What can I do to resolve this?

If you open the log window, does it show any error messages?

This is what I get:

it looks like the helper tool is either blocked or crashing. Do you get any crash error messages or are you running any security software/antivirus that might be blocking the helper tool?

Heres what I get on Catalina with Winclone 8.01 - nothing after last line, just stalls and I have to force quit app. nothing else in log, and image is 635 bytes

Yep , I got the same problem , idk what to do.

I dont have any antivirus , and also i dont get any crash error messages

Can you open up console and see if there are any winclone related messages printed when you try and do an operation?

tim

Was this issue ever resolved, as I am having the same problem, “stuck” at “setting up listener for mach service com.twocanoes.WincloneHelper”, no anti vuris, no console log errors concerning winclone image creation.

Mike

Can you try uninstalling and then reinstalling? The uninstaller is in the disk image that has software.

tim

I’m seeing the same thing here. 10.15.2 on a 16" MacBook Pro. Tried uninstall+reinstall, too.

Is all I see in console, other than some runningboardd syslogs.

Cancel does, however, work.
