Exactly HOW are you running this?

If you are getting a popup, I suspect you are using an on-line version in a 
browser.  To get the
proper Python error messages (called Tracebacks) you MUST run the program in a 
terminal on your
own computer.  These tracebacks are VERY informative (once you get used to 
them).   :-)
And these tracebacks are what WE need to see to help you.

You DO have Python installed, don't you?
