Hook hangs on Initializing ... HELP!

I hadn’t realised how dependent I had become on hook. I was using Hook fine yesterday.

But today it hangs (see screenshot).

I tried reinstalling 3.2.1 and then 3.2 and I get the same result. PLEASE can anyone help?

could you please try rebooting your Mac.


  1. In Console.app, type Hook
  2. launch Hook again
  3. If it takes a while (i.e., problem persists) then select all in Console, copy/paste into a text file, and save the file.
  4. compress the file and send it to us as PM (not public).

Thank you. I thought because I had just booted up this morning that “turning it off and on again” wouldn’t make any difference. It did.
