Found the solution by experimentation:
The GPA executable is gpa.exe (surprise!) in the GnuPG directory.
I also found that if I send it a file on the command line it opens up
the File Manager window rather than the key manager that is otherwise
So I have added the following to the registry to get a context menu
item when selecting a file, which opens the GPA file manager. From
there I can easily select the operation to be performed.
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
As you can see I have installed Gpg4Win *outside* the Program Files
directory tree in order not to have Windows messing with my files.
Hope this helps other Win7X64 users....'
