Does the file of directory name in the path have to consist of not more than 8 characters? It returns me an error "File not find".

8 characters shouldn't matter but if the path contains spaces you probably need to surround it in quotes. Hmm also on Windows you might need to use \ instead of / (eg "C:\My Photos\Test")

If you still can't get that working, just copy exiftool into the same folder as the photos, navigate to that folder from your command prompt window (or open a prompt in that folder by Shift+Right-clicking on the folder in Explorer and selecting "Open command window here"). Then you should just be able to use a . character for the path (. means current directory). Hopefully that'll do the trick...
