Opening an older version of after effects (CC17) and applying Sure Target there, saving the file and importing it in CC19 helped in my case to have the plugin running.
Would be nice though to have an update, Sure Target really is crazy helpful at some projects. And I couldn't find any good alternatives so far.

Hi Andrew.

Thanks for this you're really awesome in creraing these. Unfortunately I get, "This project contains expression errors: Error 1 of 6. Error at Line 1 in property 'Rotation Z' of layer 5 ('Sure Target') in Comp 'Comp 1'.

I found a fix for CC 2019! Go to File/Project Settings/Expressions; In the drop down box select Legacy ExtendScript. Presto this solved my problem with a text going invisible and Sure Target not following targets.

I'm quoting someone who has answered this question somewhere else, as this worked for me:

"The plugin is not certified for CC 2017 but it seems to work (at least on Mac, I cannot test in Windows). The only way to make it work is to apply the effect to a null object after have added a camera to the comp. Save your after effects file and close. Reopen your project and the plugin works. I know this is not a normal procedure but Videocopilot has not updated the plugin some time ago."

So basically, do all your work, safe, exit, reopen. It's not very handy, so maybe refrain from using the tool in future

It works for Mac AE 2019 too. Just make sure you turn on the legacy Extendscript above first (as seen above)

Hi Team.
Is there any chance this will be patched/fixed/updated to work with cc19?

Thanks to Andrew (and no doubt a team behind the scenes) I have become reasonably proficient on AE....having just scored my first wee job related to AE I could picture in my mind easily how to construct a video for their needs using Sure Target,...But alas, not to be, as SureTarget no longer functions,...
In kindness. Mike
