CellProfiler2.2.0 does not open anymore on MacOS 10.13.6


Since today I cannot open CellProfiler anymore (it shows the icon in the startup bar, but no window).
It is quite strange, because it worked for many months and I don’t think I changed anything on my computer.
Do you have any ideas?

Thank you very much!

Hmmm, that’s weird and crummy! Did Java perhaps get a stealthy update? Are you running from built or from source?

The same happened to another person at EMBL: no conscious updates and also CP2.2.0 opens only sometimes (also this person uses a Mac).

Any chance you could try with a Mac at your place?

…and we are just running from build.

I can and have been running 2.2.0 with no issues on my Mac (also 10.13.6). Can you double check your java -version for me, just to rule that out?

Thanks for testing!

In fact, it does open sometimes, but not always…

Hmmm, mine’s a bit later, but it ultimately shouldn’t matter.

It’s hard to debug further without access to your machine, since I can’t replicate the problem here- is there something output to the console maybe on the times it doesn’t open?
