Builder runner quits unexpectedly

OS: macOS Big Sur 11.4
PsychoPy version: v2021.2.0
Standard Standalone? (y/n): y
What are you trying to achieve?: When I try to run any simple experiment or demo in the Builder, the grey fullscreen loads then suddenly quits. Trying to get it to run the demos.

What did you try to make it work?: Uninstalled and re-installed. I’m new to the platform, so I’m not sure what else to do.

What specifically went wrong when you tried that?:
The following error message keeps appearing in the output:

Running: /Users/kaylap/Desktop/stroop-master/stroop_lastrun.py

PsychHID-ERROR: Could not enumerate and attach to all HID devices (HIDBuildDeviceList(0,0) failed)!
PsychHID-ERROR: One reason could be that some HID devices are already exclusively claimed by some 3rd party device drivers
PsychHID-ERROR: or applications. I will now retry to only claim control of a hopefully safe subset of devices like standard
PsychHID-ERROR: keyboards, mice, gamepads and supported USB-DAQ devices and other vendor defined devices and hope this goes better…
PsychHID-INFO: That worked. A subset of regular mouse, keyboard etc. input devices and maybe some vendor defined devices will be available at least.

Experiment ended.

Hi There,

I think this is a specific bug associated with Mac - this should be ironed out in the newest bug-fix release that will be released in the next few days. IIf you need to get something up and running sooner, please could you see if you still get this error if you install a prior version of PsychoPy? 2021.1.4 ? (Releases · psychopy/psychopy · GitHub)

Thanks!
Becca
