I have been using GPG for Windows for some years. Recently I've bought a
Mac. I've installed the GPG for Mac OSX, but the problem is that I am not
able to open the old GPG for Windows encrypted files.

I have installed the GPGServices, so what I do is: open the Windows
encrypted files on Mac using the TextWrangler text editor, selecting the
encrypted text and choosing Services->OpenPGP Decrypt.

However, I always receive the following error: "Decryption failed. No
decryptable text was found within the selection".

Does anyone know how can I decrypt Windows-GPG encrypted files on Mac OS X?
