[PySide] pyside and pycharm

I made a simple 'pst.py' (hello world) program inside Pycharm.   When I run it, it crashes with:
	"Qt internal error: qt_menu.nib could not be loaded. The .nib file should be placed in QtGui.framework/Versions/Current/Resources/  or in the resources directory of your application bundle."

Inside PyCharm, from an Python Console, all the modules look available: 
>>>     print(PySide.QtCore.qVersion())
>>> print(PySide.__version__)

So I went to the terminal and tried running the same program from the command line using 'python.app' and 'pythonw.'  The program worked fine using both {{python.app}} and {{pythonw}}   If I used just {{python pst.py}}, I got the same crash.

vt102:dBaseProject sloter$ python.app pst.py
vt102:dBaseProject sloter$ which python.app

vt102:dBaseProject sloter$ pythonw pst.py
vt102:dBaseProject sloter$ which pythonw

I think that PyCharm IDE is using the same path (Users/sloter/anaconda/bin/)   for the Python interpreter.

I watched a youtube video where a guy wrote a very similar program inside PyCharm and then ran inside Pycharm and things worked fine.  

So any ideas what I need to change to enable me to develop PySide/QT program entirely inside PyCharm?  


ps here's the cost for   'pst.py' that I tried to run


# Import PySide classes
import sys
from PySide.QtCore import *
from PySide.QtGui import *

# Create a Qt application
app = QApplication(sys.argv)
# Create a Label and show it
label = QLabel("Hello World")
# Enter Qt application main loop
