Thanks Pete,

>From the little information I have found it may be a permissions issue on 
the server, but I can not be sure. Basically this is what happens:
1. Someone fills out a form on the website and it is emailed to someone I 
created a key for.
2. The recipient gets an email with an encrypted message in the body.
3. Once the the email is received, she goes to a seperate webpage on the 
server to decrypt it.
4. She copies the encrypted body of the message into a text box on the page 
and types the pass phrase into a sperate field.
5. The form data is formatted and dispalyed for her to use.

Does that makes sense?

When I try to use a sample to try and decode a message I get this error:
PHP Warning: exec(): Unable to fork [echo Life is Motivational|C:\GnuPG\gpg 
--passphrase-fd 0 -d C:\GnuPG\temp.gpg] in 
C:\Domains\\wwwroot\cgi-bin\decode.php on line 59

Now if I copy the file "cmd.exe" into the php folder I get this error (I 
read somewhere this might help):
CGI Error
The specified CGI application misbehaved by not returning a complete set of 
HTTP headers.
