Installation
------------

For installation instructions please read the new Gpg4win Compendium:
http://gpg4win.de/doc/en/gpg4win-compendium_11.html

The *ready to use installer* is available at:
  http://ftp.gpg4win.org/gpg4win-2.1.0.exe  (38M)
  http://ftp.gpg4win.org/gpg4win-2.1.0.exe.sig

The second file is a digital signature of the the first file. 
Either check that this signature is fine or compare with the checksums given 
below.

SHA1 checksums are:
f619313cb42241d6837d20d24a814b81a1fe7f6d  gpg4win-2.1.0.exe
5a3477fa76eac00e96f171ef619fb3be5ba3c512  gpg4win-light-2.1.0.exe
dabb1b978652db258bb6099e80adc56a5de25b7c  gpg4win-src-2.1.0.exe
c56c27502c664c38935c1589cd1315dc6de9beae  gpg4win-2.1.0.tar.bz2

Developers who want to *build an installer* need to get the following
files from http://ftp.gpg4win.org/ :
  gpg4win-2.1.0.tar.bz2  (6M)
  gpg4win-2.1.0.tar.bz2.sig

A separate installer with the source files used to build the above
installer is available at:
  ftp://ftp.gpg4win.org/gpg4win/gpg4win-src-2.1.0.exe  (259M)
  ftp://ftp.gpg4win.org/gpg4win/gpg4win-src-2.1.0.exe.sig

Most developer don't need this source installer; it is merely stored on
that server to satisfy the conditions of the GPL. In general it is
better to get the gpg4win builder tarball (see above) and follow the
instructions in the README to build new installers; building the
installer is not possible on Windows machines and works best on current
Debian GNU/Linux systems. For details see:
http://gpg4win.org/build-installer.html


If you have problems downloading the above files, you may try the mirror
server listed at the download page.

We like to thank the authors of the included packages, the NSIS authors,
all other contributors and first of all, those folks who stayed with us
and helped testing Gpg4win.


With best regards

   your Gpg4win Development Team
