Encountered unrecoverable error in NamesAndTypes during start-up: could not convert string to float. (CP 3.1.8)

Hello,

I’m brand new to Cell Profiler and I’m encountering an error that says “Encountered unrecoverable error in NamesAndTypes during start-up: could not convert string to float” when I load my data (~1000 image files). I noticed that CP could parse up to 100 rows of my images (three images (different wavelengths) to a row/condition) so I removed any files after those that were being loaded and then the error went away. If I load images starting with the file that was triggering the error and load only ~300 images, it’s fine but if I load a greater number of images, it gives the same error. So it seems to be connected to the number of images that I’m trying to load. Pipeline ran fine with fewer images - I’m hoping there’s some parameter I’m missing. Happy to attach pipeline if that helps.

I rebuilt the pipeline in a new project and the error went away!
