Error when trying to run CellProfiler 2.2.0

I am desperately trying to run my precious pipeline created with CellProfiler 2.2.0.

I have downloaded on my new laptop the previous release “CellProfiler 2.2.0” however when I double click on the icon, I get an error message “CellProfiler Error”.

I have tested also the pipeline on CellProfiler 3.1.8 and I have tried to play around with thresholds, imageMath and what has been suggested above, however unfortunately it does not work at all.
Is there any way I can still work with the CellProfiler 2.2.0 version? Can anyone assist me on this matter? thanks in advance
