acronis not working

Hi I have just received my new m.2 SSD and I am trying to use the Acronis true image to clone my old hard drive to my new SSD but I have installed the software and when I try and open it it just does nothing

Are you saying Acronis won't launch & run at all?  Does it provide any errors (check Event Viewer)?  

 

What version of Windows and Acronis are you using?

Yes it will not launch & run at all i allow it to run as admin then absolutely nothing happens.

Will it run without admin privileges?  If so, use the Acronis interface to make a bootable USB drive and clone your system that way.  

 

Could you have some type of security software/settings that might be denying it?  Is it compatible with your version of Windows?

 

If you cannot make a bootable USB drive for Acronis, then there are other free cloning software options out there such as Clonezilla & Macrium Reflect.  I've never personally used these tools, but they may require a little extra work if your source & destination drives are different sizes.
