No, because the plug-ins I've referred to do not access the command line, which is how GnuPG is implemented in Windows. PGP 5.0.x up to PGP 6.5.8 have a command line version, too, but its the version of PGP that *does not* run from the command line that is accessed by these plug-ins. In my experience (though I have yet to have it confirmed) I believe there is a "bug" in the command line version of PGP 5 and up which prevents "sign & encrypt" working.

I'd be interested in his results.
