Sorry, for maintenance of this add-on you'll have to contact the author, because it's not officially maintained / hosted by Blender - it's not in release nor contribution.

You can check if the add-on is a third party one by downloading a developer build of blender and look at the 2.7x/scripts/addons and addons_contrib folders, or check out the https://wiki.blender.org/index.php/Extensions:2.6/Py/Scripts under Release and Contrib columns.

Also, before contacting the third party developer of the add-on be sure to:

  1. You have the latest version of the add-on
  2. Follow the instructions for installing and enabling it
  3. Provide some additional information if needed - blender version, a file that produces the error.

Concerning the error in question it seems similar to T53317.

Try to start Blender from the command line (cmd) with the --factory-startup argument. That will start Blender with factory settings and then you can try to enable the add-on.

If the add-on can be enabled, it points out to a corrupted saved preferences / start up files.

In cases like this, (when add-on can't be enabled) it is possible that the startup.blend and userpref.blend got corrupted, as it can happen depending when the Startup or User preferences files were saved. Usually the issue arises with developer builds or third party add-ons (add-ons not shipped with Blender).

As some kind of guidance, when using the developer builds or trying out add-ons not shipped with Blender it's better to save the startup file without the enabled add-ons and use the userpref file (Save User Settings) for storing their enabled state. Then if some add-on is misbehaving it's easier to address the issue by redoing the userpref with enabling add-ons one by one.

Marking as Incomplete until the requested information/data is provided about the possible User Preferences issue.

More than a week passed without a reply.

Due to the tracker policy, archiving until the required additional information / data is provided.
