How use this Gui:
1. first unzip in the same folder of ExifToolGui
2. rename "exiftool(-k).exe" to exiftool.exe
3. launch ExifToolGui
4. navigate in Your hard disk and open an existing image for view/edit/export Exif data.

Portability test: the Windows executable write the file ExifToolGuiV6.ini in:
--> C:\Users\User_name\AppData\Roaming\ExifToolGui\ExifToolGuiV6.ini

1. If You delete this file ExifToolGuiV6.ini and it's folder, il will recreated at new launch (subfolder + file).
2. You can put a copy of this configuration file near the program (32 or 64 bit): the program read it but save the same or a version with changes (of configuration) always inside 'C:\Users\User_name\AppData\Roaming\ExifToolGui'.

I've been planning on doing this at some point as I've used it here and there.

Edit: It's released:

Sometimes, the impossible can become possible, if you're awesome!
