Error: choose “shape” to distinguish clumped object


In the IdentifyPrimAutomatic Module, when we choose “shape” as one “ method to distinguish clumped objects”, it always gave us the following error information:

  “There was a problem running the image analysis. Sorry, it is unclear what the problem is. It would be wise to close the entire CellProfiler program in case something strange has happened to the settings. The output file may be unreliable as well. Matlab says the error is: Invalid MEX-file 'C:\Program Files\CellProfiler\CellProfiler_mcr\toolbox\images\images\private\eucdist2.mexw32' the IdentifyPrimAutomatic module, which is module #02 in the pipeline.(file:C:\Program Files\CellProfiler\CellProfiler_mcr\toolbox\images\images\bwdist.m function: bwdist line:111)”

 Thank you very much for any help! Have a wonderful day!


What version of CellProfiler are you using? This error is due to a problem with Matlab. We have released a new version that has fixed this bug (v. 1.0.4684). If you have an older version of CellProfiler, please download the latest version from the website.


Thank you so much, greatly appreciated! I will try that right now!
