The sw_urdf_exporter plugin hasn't been maintained for quite some time, and can be more bother than it's worth. It should work with SW2012 though, as that is what it targeted, but you have to be running the 64bit version.

Thank you for your comment,Sadly,I have been using SW2012 X64 on Windows7 64bit as described by Stephen Brawner on ROS.org .

Yeah. It should work with that, but the plugin could use some work. I've had good experiences with it if you add your own reference geometry instead of letting the plugin calculate joint origins / axes.
