From the error message, it looks like your computer cannot find the program Chrome, which is necessary to the app designer, as noted here in the docs:

Try installing Chrome and hopefully it will solve the problem.

Thank you very much, I guess it was a problem with the installation, I reinstalled Chrome 2 times and the matter was resolved. I’ll put a picture of me soon, thanks.
