 Hello,  I'm using Gpg4win on Windows 10 Home (64-bit).  Gpg4Win version: 3.1.16
  When I try to run Kleopatra from the desktop (not as an administrator), it doesn't run. When I run it as an administrator, I get a dialog with the following warning message:

  2. Run Kleopatra through the cmd
  3. Run as a normal user (Found more info in an article on the GnuPG Wiki:
  Are there other recommended solutions or workarounds for this type of issue?
