Unable to figure out where User List is

When I try to run a file it comes up with having to send this to Psychopy user list:

Traceback (most recent call last):
File “/private/var/folders/jp/ybh0kfts33xdlz6__vn9slwc0000gn/T/AppTranslocation/D9AD0914-CD92-4880-A91F-9FE1B5A754F7/d/PsychoPy3.app/Contents/Resources/lib/python3.6/psychopy/app/builder/builder.py”, line 1574, in fileOpen

File “”, line None
xml.etree.ElementTree.ParseError: not well-formed (invalid token): line 1, column 1

I am unsure how to do this and what to do next, please help!

Thank You
