*Using*: Using Windows XP with SP3, Thunderbird 18.104.22.168,
GPG 1.49, and Enigmail 0.95.7. No problems.
*Question*: How -- independent of Enigmail or any other GUI -- can I
use GPG via the command line procedure (e.g., to sign
someone's key with a "trust" signature)?
For some reason the following approach won't let me access GPG:
1. "Start | Run" gpg --edit-key deadbeef.
2. C:\Documents and Settings\Kara> gpg --edit-key deadbeef
3. C:\> gpg --edit-key deadbeef
In each of the above attempts, the resulting error message is:
'gpg' is not recognized as an internal or external command, operable
program or batch file."
Once I can access GPG via the command line, I know what to do from
that point on.
