I installed it with WINE under Linux, imported my pubring.gpg and
successfully checked the signature file.  

I installed it on Win98se and got an alarm box saying: gpg.exe is
linked to the not available Export-SHELL32.DLL:SHGetFolderPathA.
(Message was shown in german, I translated it.  For original see
attached image).

I did this under WINE and the output was half english half german.
The Umlauts didn't show correct.  This may be a problem of my WINE
