Unhandled Internal Error when I try to open my experiment

I am receiving the following error message when I try to open my experiment. Psychopy is saying it’s an “unhandled internal error” and to send the report to the developers. I just want to run it locally, not online. Can someone please help me?

I created the experiment on a different computer and an older version of Psychopy, but another one of my experiments, which is pretty much identical to this one (except for the excel file that determines the trials) runs fine on all versions of psychopy I’ve tried and on different computers. I’m not sure what’s wrong with this task.

The above exception was the direct cause of the following exception:

Hi @saba, I was having the same issue and found a solution for this bug. I filed a bug report at Github which also contains a solution you could try. Hopefully it works for your too:

I’ve been seeing this occasionally and I’m wondering whether the psyexp file now knows something about online repositories without checking the .git folder.
