running 3.0.2 weather cat on Mac 10.13.6

Did you try to wait some 10 minutes or so? Maybe only the progress BAR is not responding but the progress goes on?  :-[

I initially thought it wasn't working, because I got the beachball and no progress showing in the progress bar. But after a few minutes, it finished downloading, and was working like normal.

Steve, that issue of the non-progressing progress bar on 3.0.1 is a known issue, but with patience, as you discovered, it actually works.
  I left mine going about six hours .  I set it going before I went to bed and about six hours later we had not moved off the planet.

Yep, I know. It has been going on for several versions for me, so I was familiar. Waiting 30 minutes or more on 3.0.2 and still locked up though was not a good thing. :)

Did you go back to 3.0.1? That's working fine for me. Got it from my Time Machine, but also had it on my external Drobo.

I too am noticing that since I updated  to the newest version, I get about 23% downloading and it freezes up.    Can I get the previous version back or a copy of it, if whatever the problem is and can't be fixed.  I am losing valuable weather data.
I have  even completely removed and then re installed the program and it still stalls on the download.  So I got a brilliant idea and used a different logger (an IP) and it did the same thing.   

I even used the time machine to go back to an earlier time... and nope, no way, no place.  something is corrupt.
I am using Mojave , Fusion with the new APFS for fusion.
 
Well Weasel Shorts...   it is doing it again.   What I have to do now is to force exit, then disconnect the logger from the computer.  restart WC.  change the comms, exit restart, connect the logger,  select the station again in the comms.  exit, restart....  this is silly

If you can get a hang report, that will be most helpful - to do this run Applications->Utilities->Activity Monitor. Then launch WeatherCat and wait for it to hang. Once you think it has hung, highlight it in the list of processes in Activity Monitor and then click the 'Sample Process' button. This will produce a report as a text file.

Here's a link to V3.0.1 - does it work ok on that (ignoring the fact that the progress bar may not update during the historical download)?

Just updated to Mojave with the same non-progressing bar with 3.0.2 after waiting over a hour.
Restored back to 3.0.0 and yes, progress bar did not move, but it finished downloading data quickly.
Then updated to 3.0.2 from within program. Seems to be running ok now, but of course there is no back data at this point.
If it happens again, I will try and capture a log file of the crash and go back to 3.0.1

Before updating I had NO problems with 3.0.2. *sighs*

 [interesting]

PS. Also Fusion Drive in my bigMac

i had some comm problems, *have no idea WHY* and 3.0.2 started playing up again; so i reverted back to 3.0.1.
Things seem to be ok ....but am remaining on 3.0.1 for the forseeable future.

It seems, Mojave, 3.02, and Fusion Drive is something most of us with this problem have in common. I moved back to 3.0.1, let the files download, and then tried 3.0.2 again. That worked. ButI expect that the next time I have a backlog of info on the dat logger, it will lock up again.
