I agree it is very strange because I too checked the checkboxes to
deposit the "Kompendium" but after installation it is nowhere to be
I wonder why they make an installer that does not deposit the user
manual, especially if one checks that option in the setup screens....

But I have used it many years so I don't need the manual right now
The Gpg4Win website has an on-line version of the documentation, which
you might want to take a look at, though.

My problems here come from the fact taht Microsoft in its wisdom has
ruled that in Win7X64 no 32 bit plug-in will be allowed to the Windows
Explorer, not even when running the 32 bit version.

And the OpenSource people are really mostly interested in Linux
solutions so they will probably not be in a hurry to fix this.
That is why I embarked on my own search to solve the problem a bit.
