Windows multi-user installation?

I set it up that way to try it out with Thunderbird, but I recall having
to move stuff into place and tweak the Registry by hand.  It seems to work
once everything is set.

The one part that may be painful is getting the HomeDir value in
HKCU\Software\Gnu\GnuPG set properly for each user.  There may be a way to
cobble together a simple Windows Installer package that will set this up
on each user's first run, using the tools that come with WinInstall LE on
the Win2k Server kit or your favorite .MSI package builder.  Or you could
arrange for users to run gpg.cmd, gpg.vbs, or whatever to stuff the
Registry and then run the actual gpg.exe, which would likely be a lot
simpler, albeit messier.

MS Windows *is* user-friendly, but only for certain values of "user".
