No other information is presented.

Thanks for your post.
This is actually a known issue. I believe you submitted a bug report when you hit this, so you should have been sent an email with the workaround. If you didn't get it, this was the gist of it:
The execption was caused becuase your current WriteToFileOptions.xml file is in a state that we cannot read.
You should be able to resolve this by deleting the file found at %localappdata%\\Red Gate\\SQL Compare\\WriteToFileOptions.xml
The next time you run SQL Compare, it will write out a new WriteToFileOptions.xml in the correct format.
You may need to re-enter your custom folder layout in the usual place and save your default settings for this feature again to restore your default settings to your usual layout.
I hope this helps.
