Sorry, I don't have any windows boxes around right now, but did want to
provide two notes.

- GPG4WIN is the right package to install gpg2 on windows, so you've got
the right installer.  It's a shame GPA doesn't work with a screen reader.

- The 1.4 branch is still supported and maintained in parallel with the
2.0 branch.  If 1.4.9 is working for you, just stick with 1.4.9, or
perhaps upgrade to 1.4.11.
