I'm using putty 0.66, just upgrading to latest 0.67 and problem still, and I found that pageant tray not appear in my taskbar (I remember it's there when I using gpg2.0) right now if Iexecute pageant manually without open putty, it will shows, but if I opened putty, I can't find pagaent in my process list and even after I close putty, excute pageant will give me pageant is alreay running error. No idea what's happening here, should this be normal case?
