Preview pane empty for RAW files??

(1/2) > >>

I am not using ExifToolGUI on a daily basis, but at times I do and appreciate how useful it is. Lately the preview pane is empty; I could swear that it was not always like this. I'm dealing with ORF (Olympus RAW), but I can't see a preview for eg CR2 as well. Only for JPG and TIF the preview pane shows an image.

Is this a problem, or am I just wrong and preview pane doesn't work for RAW files?

I'm running Windows 10 build 17134 and the latest versions of ExifToolGUI and Exiftool.


I was able to solve the issue by reinstalling the FastPictureViewer codecs that I use to display RAW thumbnails throughout Windows. My Windows was recently upgraded to Spring Creator 1803, maybe during this operation codecs were disabled / overwritten by others that are not capable to display ORF.

Just read this one searching for a solution.
Had the same problem.

If you run the Gui 'As Administrator' it runs fine

Are you sure you have the same problem as the original poster?

This means, you run Bogdan's ExiftoolGUI v5.16 to view raw files, and you don't see a preview unless you run it as admin?

Hard to believe that raw preview should depend on admin rights.

I'm a little allergic to "run as admin" recommendations, so would you mind to give more details?

Which OS, which RAW format, which codec extension, where did you put ExiftoolGUI?

Sorry, i did not have notifications 'ON'

Only just read this one.
All I know is that It did not work in normal mode but as soon as I run it as admin it does work.

What information do you need?
