What version sharepoint are you connecting to? If you are connecting to SP2013, then you need to use the SP2013 specific release. Also, what OS are you using? Please provide this information to help narrow it down. Thanks.

I didn't write OS, because it could be read from problem description dump ;)
Windows Server 2012 + SharePoint Server 2013.

One more thing, title of this project suggests, that the version is for SP 2007, 2010 and 2013. I got it from donwload page under "recommended download". Was this not the right version?

Correct, 1 downoad for the MOSS and SP2010 versions, 1 download for the 2013 version.

I just updated the recommended release to include both MOSS/SP2010 and SP2013 versions (so 2 separate exe files). This should hopefully make it more clear which version to use when downloading from front page.

Hi folks, I wanted to report this same error that I encountered today. I'm using the latest build, running on Win8(x64), and running against a SharePoint 2010 site (with whatever the latest service pack is - sorry I don't know which one, that's all handled by our IT department).

I'm following the same sequence - I'm checking "Use SharePoint Object Model", then when I click the Submit button, the app throws the same FileNotFoundException.

I found that the app works great if I instead select "Use Web Services (Impersonate Current User)".

Sorry - I didn't indicate which version of the app I'm using - I did make a point of selecting the SP2010/2007 version (and when I saw the exception, I downloaded again and double-checked the version).
