sw2urdf 2020 with v1.6 flashes and disappears

I'm trying to export a SolidWorks model to URDF using SW2URDF, but after clicking "Export to URDF," the exporter menu simply flashes for a second and then disappears. I am on Windows 10 and using SolidWorks 2020 with SW2URDF v1.6 which I believe are the compatible versions (have been looking at similar questions asked previously). What else could be going wrong?

It's unfortunate that this bug occurs with the precompiled installer. It's most likely that the compiled version of the plugin and your version of solidworks are incompatible.

Please try compiling and installing via source. If you are successful with compiling from source, could you please submit an issue to the github repo? I created a specific template for these sorts of requests because I think it's the most common issue at the moment.
