I downloaded 1.4.9 and installed it.  I then grabbed WinPT and when 
launching WinPT, I get repeated gpg.exe crashes, like I did before.

I also downloaded GnuPT and installed that, which comes with 1.4.9 and 
running that also causes gpg.exe crashes.

I then took all of the EXEs from w32cli install and copied them over to 
the GnuPT folder and had the same result.

I am really at a loss as to how to get a GUI interface to work with GnuPG.

What should I try next?
