Putting the question you wish answered in the /message body/ is usually
the more _reliable_ method of getting it answered.

GnuPG 2.0 is a reimplementation of GnuPG using shared libraries. Many
readers of this list view it and the 1.4 branch as separate products,
not a later version of 1.4.x


Did you Try Google? "Google Is Your Friend®" (As are the list archives)

Googling "gnupg+for+windows" is the first hit.

Changing it to "gnupg+2.0+for+windows" moves to #3.

GnuPG 2.0 is included in the GPG4WIN package, along with a whole slew of
other products which one may find useful on Windows. Version 1.1.4
contains a fix for users on MS Windows Vista. Versions prior to that
will run fine on XP and 2000.
