This is my first time to post to a mailing list so I apologize if I 
screwed it up somehow or posted to the wrong list.

I'm using Windows XP Home Service Pack 3 and Gpg4win 2.0.0 RC1. 

Whenever I generate a key with GPA I get an error saying "gpa.exe 
has encountered an error and needs to close..." When I restart GPA 
the key I was in the middle of creating is there and seems to be ok.

I was trying to work through the GPG for Novices manual but Adele's 
replies are all in German which I don't understand. So for practice 
I logged into my Windows XP admin account and created a GPG key & 
email account for it. I then logged into the limited user account I 
normally use and created another key and email account for it (I 
got the gpa.exe error message during the creation of both keys). I 
exchanged public keys between the two accounts & then tried 
exchanging messages between them.
When I sent a meessage from the admin to the user account 
everything worked fine, decryption went of without a hitch but 
whenever I send a message from the limited user account to the 
admin account I again get the "gpa.exe has encountered a problem 
and needs to close..." error when the admin account tries to 
decrypt the message.

When this error occurs I also get a pop-up about sending an error 
report to Microsoft. When it sends this report there's also a txt 
file that that is created in a Windows temp folder. I copied & 
saved that file before I let Windows send the error report to 
Microsoft, it's quite a big file but I'll be glad to post it if 
it'll help.

thanks in advance.
