luweitest added a comment to T6207: can't open gpg-agent.

Yes I do understand Windows XP is not supported. Just in case it is a minor problem that is easy to fix and will not cost you much effort. I'd like to add more information: I do not change
%LOCALAPPDATA%. There is no such environment variable. A similar environment variable is:
APPDATA=C:\Documents and Settings\myname\Application Data
I do set GNUPGHOME=E:\key, which I think should be allowed because I do not want my personal info be stored in system drive.

The "sysconfdir" "C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\GNU" does not exist actually. Does it matter?

luweitest added a comment to T5560: gpg.exe interrupt batch execution in WindowsXp.

Tried and no change -- cmd window still flashes away.

luweitest closed T5602: GnuPG 2.3.2 cannot decrypt in WinowsXp as Wontfix.

luweitest added a comment to T5589: add context menu for normal operation after installation.

Thanks for the explanation. I understand gnupg-w32 is mainly for installing the command line component, yet adding a context menu for a specific file type is just as simple as importing a reg file like:

luweitest renamed T5560: gpg.exe interrupt batch execution in WindowsXp from gpg.exe changes the properties of command line window and do not quit normally in batch execution to gpg.exe interrupt batch execution in WindowsXp.

luweitest added a comment to T5560: gpg.exe interrupt batch execution in WindowsXp.

Thanks to jaclaz@msfn.org, the workaround is to use pipe operation like:
pause|"C:\Program Files\GnuPG\bin\gpg.exe" --verify "%1"
He also confirmed that gpg.exe does interrupt batch processing, regardless what command is followed.
And I have tested in Windows 7, batch processing is not interrupted. Since this bug is WindowsXp specific, "won't fix" should be more proper.

luweitest reopened T5589: add context menu for normal operation after installation as "Open".

What I need is exactly ikloecker described on Linux. The point is NSIS installer gnupg-w32-2.2.27_20210111.exe (and versions above, I am sure) do not create context menu shortcut. Windows XP is not the point. Same on another Windows 7 machine. Do you need I find another windows 10 machine to test? I think it's easier to check whether the installer has that feature or not.

luweitest added a comment to T5589: add context menu for normal operation after installation.

Sorry, I should clarify that I am using the windows installer
gnupg-w32-2.2.27_20210111.exe on WindowsXpSp3. The installer do not create
any context menu since I use it. I use Gnupg with Enigmail in Thunderbird,
so Gpg4win is not preferred.
