You need to read the official tutorial on the annotation tool, but to me it seems you are using the parameters wrong, captured by the command line parser. It requires you to add a = symbol between the variable and the actual assignment, and furthermore it needs a double dash.

So try something like opencv_annotation.exe --images=/path/to/images --annotation=/path/to/annotation/file!

You are welcome! It seems many people make this mistake, although the tutorial says how it works. Guess all the deprecated tutorials on the net are to blame for that...
