gpg command line language wrong
Closed, InvalidPublic


I am working with an English language Win7 x64 system. Still, gpg.exe shows its output in the
command line (and when called from within Enigmail in Thunderbird) in German instead of in

This may be because I have set my Location (for weather services etc.) as well as my number
formats/units to German, but neither of those two is supposed to change the language any program
is displayed in.

gnupg uses LC_ALL, LC_MESSAGES, LANG and the system default determined with GetThreadLocale() on Windows. Can you please check if you have set any of these environment variables?

2.0 will reach EOL soon and we have received no response. Thus closing. If the problem persists with 2.2 (e.g. from gpg4win 3.0) please re-open this bug.
