I have gpg4win 3.1.11 installed on Windows 10. To improve performance, I have set up a task (scheduled for run at logon):
gpgconf.exe --launch gpg-agent
(I have no ideas whether this has anything to do with my problem, but either way it is a legitimate command that should not cause gpg4win to fail.)
When I try to use gpg4win (regardless whether I access it via Claws email or via Kleopatra) it works most of the time. In ~30% of the times, however, it does not respond at all, causing the application that called it to just hang for good. In these cases, there is nothing I can do to make it work short of reboot. Even if I kill all gpg-related processes in Windows task manager, it still does not work. They get restarted, but they hang again.
Rebooting does work tho.
My hardware is not possibly the bottleneck either (Ryzen 3700X with 32 GB RAM).
This is annoying. What can I do?
