Dependency of libexpat-1.dll
Closed, ResolvedPublic


When installing Gpg4win + Kleopatra the libexpat-1.dll will also be installed although it is not necessary. The dependencies should be updated so the dll will only be installed when users choose to install GPA.

I think this is because we install pinentry-gtk, too. So we have that GTK dependency.

Maybe we should just drop pinentry-gtk and see if someone complains. The fallback pinentry we have is the pinentry-w32 that comes with gnupg.

A simple first step would be to install pinentry-gtk only in the GPA variant.

Gpg4win doesn't include libexpat anymore (since it doesn't include gpa and pinentry-gtk anymore).
