Annotator Crashes on every attempted use!

#1
Please help. I cannot use annotator. Every time I try to load it, it crashes and gives the following error. I have updated windows. The .NET framework, etc. Is there another program available that I can use to add autogen to my photo sceneries?

I tried clicking find a solution, but nothing happens. I have also included a photo of what's in my annotator folder.

Any help would be much appreciated.

This thread might be old... But as i experienced the same problem today and came up with a solution, i thought is might be good to share. :)

In the main SDK folder there is a program called ConfigSDK.exe

Run that and update the MSFS location. (Simply press "y" and click enter).
