Java Error when importing with PGPROF 17.10

I profiled my OpenACC application using pgprof with the command

$ pgprof --export-profile

from a remote machine, and now I am trying to import that profile on my local machine. Both machines are running PGI 17.10. When I try to import, pgprof crashes and gives the following error:

I’m not quite sure how to continue from here.
