Here's a sample .REG file (From the Nullify build for Windows):


"HomeDir"="C:\\Program Files\\GnuPG"
"gpgProgram"="C:\\Program Files\\GnuPG\\gpg.exe"

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Mingw32]

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Mingw32\NLS]
"MODir"="C:\\Program Files\\GnuPG\\Locale"

Never heard of GNUPGHOME. There was a PGPHOME in some of the old PGP
cmdline versions. Just use gpg.conf here, no Options. file.
