When I connect to ftp.g10code.com, there is no pub directory.
[I'm doing anonymous FTP with WS_FTP].
There is a g10code directory and in there is an outlgpg directory.
I got the zip of the 0.99.4 version dated July 27, 2005.

As to permissions, I checked and I'm in the administrators group
on my machine--I can't think what other permissions I'd need. :-)

I upgraded to 1.4.2 from 1.4.1 and the behavior is the same.

As to copying the data that shows up as part of Microsoft's error
reporting. The text is not selectable.

So, I don't see any path going forward that will help resolve the
problem on my system:
  Dr. Watson doesn't seem to get invoked, just Microsoft's
     Error reporting.
  I can't copy Microsoft's report content.

Just to summarize:

Hardware: Dell OPTIPLEX GX270: Dual Pentium 4 (2.8G Hz)
                               2 GB RAM

OS: Windows XP Professional, Service Pack 2
    (Build 2600.xpsp_sp2_gdr.050301-1519 : Service Pack 2)
Outlook: Microsoft Office Outlook 2003 (11.6359.6408) SP1
         [Installed from Microsoft Office Standard Edition 2003]

GPG Location: C:\Program Files\Gnu\GnuPG\gpg.exe

GPGExch info:

Summary of behavior problems:
   When Outlook is started, I get several dialog boxes relating
   to storing values in the registry. The first one says access
   denied. The other 5 indicate the operation completed successfully.

   Preferences changed on the GnuPG tab do not survive a program
   restart. Changing the preferences also causes the 5 dialog
   boxes to appear.

   When changing preferences,
    the "Also encrypt message with the default key" starts off
    with the value:
    C:\Documents and Settings\rjensen.AMERICAS\Application Data\gnupg
    If I attempt to save changes I get an error dialog:
        "The default key cannot contain any spaces".
    I have to clear out the box and uncheck to save other changes.

    Attempting to verify a signature results in a dialog:
        "Invalid crypto engine"

    Attempting to sign a message causes Outlook to 'close'.
    After composing a plain text message I click on 'Send'.
    I do not get a prompt for my passphrase.
    I just get the dialog about:
      "Microsoft Office Outlook has encountered a problem
       and needs to close"

Error 'signature':
  AppName:  outlook.exe   AppVer: 11.0.6353.0  AppStamp: 408f2937
  ModName: libgpgmedlgs.dll  ModVer:   ModStamp: 42e0c70e

If I look at the error report contents, I can't copy and paste,
but here are some more details:

Then there are a large number of 'Modules' listed.
GPGExch.dll is module 63 and libgpgmedlgs.dll is module 64.

After all the modules, there is information about different threads,
but without being able to copy the contents, I don't know what
information would be helpful.

I'll be glad to try the next version, but I don't see there
is anything more I can do with this one.
