Thanks, I am just grasping for some way to get this stuff working
*comfortably* with Win7 X64.
Microsoft has decided that 32 bit applications cannot be allowed to
integrate with the Windows Explorer context sensitive menu. This is
where I do almost all my work by right clicking the file I want to
process (edit, copy, open, encrypt, decrypt etc). But now since i got
my latest laptop at work it came with Win7 X64 Professional and a
*lot* of my applications that were earlier integrated (in XP Pro) are
now invisible including GPGee, GPGshell (tested today) and my old
workhorse UltraEdit.
So I am trying to find *something* that can work for encryption use in
Win7 X64. I don't particularly like the command prompt for that...
