Did you add "C:\GnuPG" to your PATH? Also there are a few Registry
Settings that need set -- save the lines between the ++++ to some file
with the extension .reg, edit to reflect your configuration, and
double-click in Explorer to install.

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00


"HomeDir"="C:\\Program Files\\GnuPG"
"OptFile"="C:\\Program Files\\GnuPG\\gpg.conf"
