Cellprofiler crashed at the starting process

Today i failed to run the cellprofiler, the runing process always stopped as the following picture and won’t go any further. I have uninstalled the software and installed the software several times but it doesn’t work. Did anyone ever meet such problem?

I have resolved the problem just by deleting input folder, and then CP switching to default directory when start. There seemed something wrong with the JPG files in original input folder, as indicated errors in the upper picture occurred in my last analysis.


I believe this error occurs when the folder contains non-standard ascii characters; perhaps you are/were using a country-specific symbols in the folder?. In any case, this is a general issue which should be solved by the next release.


A workaround to this problem is posted here.
