Basic experiment won't run - beginner!

Mac OS Sierra
PsychoPy version 1.90.1 - standalone

I am a complete beginner with Psychopy. I have installed the standalone version and the tools that were prompted on initial startup.

I cannot get a simple experiment to run. Using builder, I have created a text component. When I click run, I get the following message:

PyschoPy output

OSError: cannot load library ‘/Applications/’: dlopen(/Applications/, 2): no suitable image found. Did find:
/Applications/ stat() failed with errno=20. Additionally, ctypes.util.find_library() did not manage to locate a library called ‘/Applications/’

I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling PsychoPy. I’ve also tried creating different components, such as images and movies. The same thing happens.

I’d hugely appreciate any help.
