Unknown Lens

I have a couple of old Sigma lenses which Lightroom doesn't know, so in the metadata I get 'Unknown lens'.

 

I found an article online about using ExifTool / ExifToolGui / FullMetaExport to create a plugin and writing a script to correct the Lens, LensType and LensModel in the metadata.

 

Whilst ExifTool & ExifToolGui are still around, FullMetaExport isn't.

 

So any suggestions for how to fix the metadata, preferably not by editing it for each photo separately?

 

I'm using a Windows PC and my Lightroom is up-to-date.

Having installation problems.

 

I'm using the instructions from: https://www.lenstagger.com/documentation/how-to-install-lenstagger/

 

I've downloaded & extracted (1), started Lightroom & the plugin manager (2, 3), and followed the steps so I can Add the plugin (4, 5).

However the Plugin won't load. It has a red 'blob' and the Status is 'This plugin is malfunctioning and can not be used.'

 

I turned on 'Save diagnostic to file', reloaded the plugin and optned the file.  This is the error:

 

An error occurred while attempting to load this plug-in.
The plug-in description script (Info.lua) is missing.

So no idea what the problem is.

Argh can't see how to edit my reply!

 

To add, Exiftool is installed, exiftool.exe is in C:\Windows\System32, and I restarted after copying it there.
