CellProfiler won't start on Mac OS 10.12.2 Sierra

I have downloaded CellProfiler versions 3.0.0 and 3.1.9 but neither will run on my Mac. Both are int he Applications folder. They appear to try to start but never open. I tried to open them from Terminal (as per a previous thread) but when I try that I get a message that says the file could not be found. I would appreciate it if anyone has any suggestions. Thanks.

These links might be useful too,

Thank you Lakshmi. It was a java issue and once I downloaded the java version in the comment thread, the program opened and works.

After download and installation, CP 3.0.0 notifies me of ‘unidentified developer’, which is to be expected, however I am unable to allow app to open through ‘system preferences>privacy and security>general’ as is fairly standard when opening applications through unidentified developers. The icon appears in the quick tool bar at at the bottom of the screen, but then rapidly disappears. CP 3.0.0 is fully downloaded onto the OS at this point but will not open. I have gotten the same results on my …
