As Dennis said - BoxGrinder is meant to use .appl files, not kickstart files, therefore you get this error. You can read more about how to use BoxGrinder on its homepage:

P.S. Although we have support for kickstart files at some extent, this feature most probably will be removed in next major BoxGrinder version as it introduces confusion (as you can see above) and is too hard to maintain.
