CellProfiler 3.1.8 - Startup Issue

I am an avid user of CP software for some time, however recently I have had trouble starting up CP 3.1.8 or CP 2.2 on one particular computer (which implies to me that there is a problem with the set up there).

I hoped someone may be able to point me in the right direction of how to solve this problem. After starting to run 3.1.8 I receive the following error message and the terminal window just hangs without proceeding (CP2.2 starts to run, displays some kind of error and the terminal closes quickly without time to see the error message):

Traceback (most recent call last):

Thanks in advance!
