Oups seems that this bug was already reported twice. Sorry for that

This was a problem with ExifTool > 8.23.

When activating the info panel the first time, ExifTool will be used with the command -listx once to get all available tags. The amount of tags seems to be increased in ExifTool 8.24. So the Windows API function CreateProcess hangs because of a too small pipe buffer. I doubled the buffer now to 10 MB...

A new beta version is available at but I will release a new official update as soon as possible, maybe today...
