ExifTool > ExifTool GUI

Calling ExifTool.exe from a batch file


I would like to open ExifTool from a batch file and pass it the folder location to open and also to pass the Workspace definition file to open.

This code opens ExifTool with the correct folder opened:

set mydate=%date:~10,4%%date:~4,2%%date:~7,2%

START "" "C:\ExifTool\ExifToolGUI.exe" "S:\Digital Photographs\2020\%mydate%\"

Can I also pass this string "C:\ExifTool\Nikon Zoom-Nikkor 35-105mmWorkspace.ini"  to load the Workspace definition file and if I can how do I do it.


Are you running ExifTool or ExifToolGUI?  It looks like you mean the GUI.

As the Sticky Post in the ExifTooGUI subforum says, ExifToolGUI is no longer supported. 

Thanks!  Yes I am running ExifToolGUI.  There is a lot of information to read in support of ExifTool and I just didn't come across the info the the GUI was no longer supported yet. I guess then I'm just out of luck as to what other input parameters are supported and how to supply them.
