Sorry, currently there are no MSVC compatible debug symbols available. We 
compile with GCC and the debug info is incompatible.

My suggestion is to run your code with an environment variable set like:

set GPGME_DEBUG=9;c:\tmp\gpgme.log

(assuming c:\tmp exists and is writable) this will show you a lot of what is 
going on inside GPGME.

Access violations sound like maybe a NULL pointer variable where there should 
not be one or an unterminated string. (Or random / uninitialized pointers 
passed as we mostly check for NULL pointers).
