Gpg4win includes GPA, so I am not quite sure what you are saying.
If GPA from the Gpg4win package worked, it would be fine.

Cool, thanks for the report!

This is also a good sign.
You can do many crypto operations directly with gpg.exe.
This is good to know when the frontends have difficulties with an operation.
gpg.exe --gen-key
should create a keypar for instance.

In principle nobody would mind having a version for Vista, 
it depends on who is able to do it. 

Gpg4win 1.0's target was Windows XP. This goal was reached.
It has been a project from the German Federal Agency of IT-Security (BSI)
(http://www.bsi.de/presse/pressinf/020506emailwindows.htm German pressrelease,
English introduction to BSI: http://www.bsi.de/english/index.htm )
They deserve the praise for it.

Other goals will also depend on some individuals or organsations helping
in one way or the other. As an individual 
you can help with testing, coding and even a small financial tip.
