Gpg4win is an installer which includes GnuPG as its crypto engine.  In
fact, Gpg4win is the suggested way to install GnuPG on Windows.

In case your question is whether you can use the GnuPG 1.4 installer
along with Gpg4win (which comes with GnuPG 2): This is not suggested but
should not pose a security problem.  Note, that you will end up with two
programs named gpg on your box - this may lead to  some confusion.
