Fair enough, I was not precise, my apologies.

I run GnuPG off a Truecrypt encrypted partition on a USB stick,
so I can access it places where I do not wish to load my
keyring, and cannot install a card reader. I find that version
1.4.11 with GPGShell works like a charm, and would be loathe to
see it disappear. However, I am not a real programmer, nor do I
play one on the radio (I just pretend to be one for the free
stuff 8-) ) and so while I probably could, if I had to, compile
from source using Cygwin or MingW, I'd feel safer if someone who
knew what they were doing did it. I still have nightmares from
the time I built an ATLAS BLAS and then used it to compile
Rblas.dll under windows. Probably took me over two weeks to get
it right :}
