Let's start with the usual questions:

Does LaTeX produce the synctex file correctly (can you open it in a text
editor successfully)?
Does TeXworks display a message saying it uses the synctex file in the
pdf window's status bar when you open the document?
Does the behavior change depending on whether you use the portability
mode (i.e. depending on the existence of portable.ini)

And for the sake of completeness:

It did work with previous versions and you didn't change any
configuration/update your TeX distribution/do anything else?
Does it work with the pure version 271 (without the portability patch)?
