we recently gave support with a Problem concerning DATEV Software and gpg4win 
on gpg4win-professional.

It appears that the DATEV E-Mail Security Software also uses gnupg and they 
set the gnupg home directory location to be inside their Program directory.

So as a Heads up if you encounter problems with Kleopatra / GpgOL or other 
parts of gpg4win, while also using DATEV Software, check that your gnupg home 
is set correctly. (gpgconf --list-dirs)

You can force this by setting the Registry key 

to point to your correct gnupg home directory (the place 
where %APPDATA%/gnupg) refers to.

Hope this information helps someone in the future.
