Question re writing FileCreateDate w/ tagsfromfile
« on: July 01, 2013, 09:10:46 AM »
Hi,
I'm working on a batch file built from a directory list of files, and among the commands I'm trying to run is:

exiftool -P -tagsfromfile "E:\CATALOG\SRC\MySourceFile.tif" "-FileModifyDate>FileModifyDate" "-FileModifyDate>FileCreateDate" "E:\CATALOG\DEST\MyTargetFile.tif"

The 'FileCreateDate' portion throws an error saying "Warning: Tag 'filecreatedate' does not exist"

I see on this page http://www.sno.phy.queensu.ca/~phil/exiftool/TagNames/Extra.html it states: "Windows only. Requires Win32API::File::Time for writing."
I'm apparently missing something on my system, but not sure how to go about resolving this issue. It's a newly installed Win7Pro SP1 64bit system.

3d.

Try updating to a more recent version of ExifTool.  The ability to write FileCreateDate was added in version 9.07.

...where DIR is the name of a directory/folder containing the images.  On Mac/Linux, use single quotes (') instead of double quotes (") around arguments containing a dollar sign ($).
