I'm using the GPG 2.1.5 build from gnupg.org on Windows 8.1
When I'm trying to do several actions in GnuPG, I'm presented with an "Unknown
IPC command" message.
Examples of this are:
gpg --verbose --search-keys email@example.com
gpg: error searching keyserver: Unknown IPC command
gpg: keyserver search failed: Unknown IPC command
gpg --recv-key B76C94DD
gpg: keyserver receive failed: Unknown IPC command
This is executing it in a CMD with the only gpg on path being above installation.
Executing it from MSYS2 (here, the FIRST gpg, gpg-agent etc. on path are the
above mentioned installation, there is another gpg 1.4.19 in /usr/bin), it
already fails me on
% gpg-connect-agent /bye
ERR 67109139 Unknown IPC command <GPG Agent>
Another detail that may or may not be important: I'm using a smartcard reader in
Most "normal" commands (encryption, decryption, key editing etc.) work fine though.
