HI Werner,

You should never ever run programs as Admin on Windows

-> I'm not running the program as admin,  I'm running it as my regular 
user, but it is part of the administrators group.

Gpg4win merely added a warning to avoid such pitfalls

-> That's the problem Werner, once you "OK" this window Kleopatra does 
/not/ launch.  I had to revert back to 3.0.14 to be able to use 
Kleopatra again.
