Running Cell Profiler 2.2.0 on Mac OS 10.14.6

Does anyone know how to run Cell Profiler 2.2.0 on Mac OS 10.14.6. I’ve already downloaded the program but my Mac won’t run it. Not sure how to solve the problem. Please help thanks.

Hi @Jessica_Hsieh,

Did you install Java 1.8? That should be required for older versions to run properly.

Is there any particular reason that you need CellProfiler 2? It’s no longer updated and so support for newer OSX versions can’t be guaranteed.

@DStirling is this the correct place to download Java 1.8 ( []

I’ve already downloaded it but still can’t run cell profiler 2. Should I download anything else. I use cell profiler 2 for my research. Tks

@Jessica_Hsieh - You may also need the standard Java environment to be installed, which is available here:
