In (German) Win10 pro V1809 (Build 17763.316) I get directly after start:

Code: [Select]
---------------------------
Exiftoolgui
---------------------------
Access violation at address 7517D637 in module 'shell32.dll'. Read of address 06A50070.
---------------------------
OK   
---------------------------

And I can not go to any folder.

After close I see
Code: [Select]
[Window Title]
Exiftoolgui

[Content]
Cannot save GUI settings

[OK]

Compatibility setting for Win7 does not help. It's in my own "C:\Tools" folder.
Does anybody know how to get ExitToolGUI running in Win10?

I don't remember seeing the Access violation error, but there are other threads with solutions to Windows 10 problems.
