Have you created the /wp-content/uploads/ folder and ensured that the folder has write permissions (777)?
Being that this is the folder in which the XML files are stored, this could be the problem.

You may already have discovered the following information but just in case (and for others)...
The current version of WP-SimpleViewer plugin is v2.0.5.
The instructions for installing and adding a gallery can be found here: … pleviewer/

Are these instructions outdated?  I am trying to follow these instructions in the link above, and some of the links and tabs are not present any longer.

This is so frustrating.

I have a large collection of photos that I want to insert into a WP post, but I have no idea what to do.

How do I add my photos to a gallery?

The instructions state:

Upgrading to SimpleViewer-Pro

SimpleViewer-Pro supports advanced customization options, no download link, unlimited images and more. To upgrade the WP-SimpleViewer plugin to SimpleViewer-Pro, do the following:

   1. Replace the SWF file in the WordPress plugin folder with the one from the SimpleViewer-Pro download. To do this, upload the /web/simpleviewer.swf file from the Pro download folder to the /wp-content/plugins/wp-simpleviewer/web/ folder inside your WordPress install folder.
   2. Clear your browser cache. If you do not see the 'SimpleViewer' badge at bottom right of your gallery, you have successfully upgraded to Pro.
   3. You can now enter Pro config options into the "Pro Options" text area.

However, there is no SWF file in the web folder of the latest SimpleViewer-Pro download.  Please help!
