[Olga Busch] "Thank you very much for creating this great XTE tool! I tried the new XTE title x-title tool lite edition, but I cannot get it working."

So I'll try to help.

[Olga Busch] "I followed the instructions in the video and downloaded XTCC/XTE Mojave. "

The video is a bit outdated.
You should download the actual one anyway *):

[Olga Busch] "There is no floating window where to drag the project with the CC, so I exported XML from FCPX 10.4.6. "

By default the main window is a floating once when the app is activated, it switches back to standard behaviour when a conversion is done.
Maybe you have turned off this behaviour in the preferences:

But regardless of these setting you always can turn on/off this by pressing 'ctrl-T'

[Olga Busch] "When opening in FCPX I get an error message.
Do I need to make certain settings in FCPX before exporting the XML?"

This can happen under certain conditions. Not every caption/title relation can be resolved in any case.
So the "Known Issues" part of the website says:
'In certain situations subtitles(captions) in FCPX have to be in a "subtitle only" project.'

since 10.4 with every version there are some XML bugs more obvious, some are added and with 10.4.7 a new one is there. The latter one isn't only a XML one but could happen while working with certain titles.
Have a look here:

become a monster. And if thou gaze long into an abyss, the abyss will
also gaze into thee." - Friedrich Nietzsche, Beyond Good and Evil
