Failed to remember GPG path on Windows 8 (x64)

description

I installed GPG4Win core program with GPA (for cert management).
Each time I used GnuPGNotepad to encrypt (or decrypt) some texts, it yielded "Value cannot be null. Parameter name: BinaryPath." and then gave me an empty "Application Error" window.
I tried to set binary path manually from "Options > Modify GnuPG Binary Path" and GnuPGNotepad did accept GPG2.exe as the correct binary file. But encryption and decryption were still not working.

I'm on 64-bit Windows 8, any idea why this would happen? (Even tried as Administrator, no go!)

By the way, appreciate your hard work making this tiny tool!

Looking into it...

Could you tell me the path where you installed GPG.exe or GPG2.exe?

Okay, I found the issue and updated the files... download v1.3 and see if it works for you...

Version 1.3 worked fine with gpg2.exe, but I do hope this notepad could remember the path so no need to specify every time at launch.

I sometimes saw this window popped up, it was no big deal since it didn't affect encryption or decryption.

Thanks a lot for quick fix.
