After gpg4win installation on a Windows XP system claws-mail won’t start. How can I check for the reason why? Thanks. Gerard.
what version of gpg4win and Claws Mail did you install?
Did you ever configured a previous version of Claws Mail (or formerly Sylpheed-Claws) for this user on that machine?

Yes Sylpheed-Claws 1.0??
Do you get any error when you start Claws Mail?
I’d suggest installing a non-official snapshot of mine, waiting for a gpg4win release that would come with Claws Mail 3.0.0.
This snapshot is based on a recent SVN snapshot of gpg4win sources and Claws Mail 2.10.0cvs189. This Claws Mail version contains some fixes and debug helpers for Windows users.
Try w/ the new Claws Mail installed from that snapshot.
If it’s not better, from a console window:
$ cd “c:\program files\gnu\gpg4win” (or wherever you installed gpg4win)
$ claws-mail.exe --debug
then please send me the claws-win32.log file created in the current directory.
If you don’t mind loosing your old Claws configuration, rename or remove any .sylpheed-claws or .claws-mail dir found in %APPDATA% then try starting Claws Mail.
I will try it and get you informed. Thank you.
Here is the claws-win32.log

And Claws Mail vanishes w/o a single error message, like a “application error, generating an error log” from the system?
The log is probably incomplete, but it’s not your fault. I’ll check if I can reproduce in Windows XP ASAP.

Gerard, I can’t reproduce it yet.
BTW, I’ve updated the Claws Mail Windows snapshot:
but that shouldn’t change anything to your problem IMO.
Can you please confirm me that there is no .claws-mail\ or .sylpheed-claws\ directory in you %APPDATA% dir?
I renamed .sylpheed to xx.sypheed. So there is no more config file.
it seems, that the problem is at the line 1020
there is just simple g_fopen(rcfile, “rb”); which should maybe be replaced with something like
If this true, this means that all calls to g_fopen should do the same, and that occurrences of f_open should be replaced as well. I’ll do some checks and see.
could you try to reproduce with the following gpg4win+claws-mail-cvs unofficial snapshot?
