gpg4win 3.1.5 pinentry fails on some systems
Open, HighPublic

Description

Since gpg4win 3.1.5 is released, I received about 10 error reports concerning pinentry. All report the same problem:

pinentry.exe - System Error
The code execution cannot proceed because libassuan-0.dll was not found. Reinstalling the program may fix this problem.
The code execution cannot proceed because libgpg-error-0.dll was not found. Reinstalling the program may fix this problem.

Downgrading to 3.1.4 helped in all cases.

Strange, even if they are missing in the Gpg4win insttall dir they should be picked up from GnuPG which is added to PATH.

Which components are you choosing during installation?

Is this with the /MINIMAL flag?

I'll try to reproduce it in various minimal installations.

Is this with the /MINIMAL flag?

I don't know. From what I understand, installation of gpg4win is not necessarily done from within Enigmail.

Could it be possible that it's a 32/64 bit issue?

No. Pinentry is always 32 bits for us.
