Is there a way to use Gpg via windows command line terminal with Gpg
installed on USB stick? No attempt I have made to do this, with Gpg
installed on USB stick and accessible to Thunderbird/Enigmail, has
worked. At best I can nevigate to the Gpg folder, and activate its .exe,
but entering Gpg commands produces only an unknown command response.
