mkportable: file 'gtk-update-icon-cache.exe.manifest' not found in the source di

Hi all

just downloaded the latest version of gpg4win here: and did a full installation.

Tried to create a portable version as mentioned on above page:

To create a portable Gpg4win version use the included tool mkportable.exe.
HOWTO: Install Gpg4win with all components and then run from the command line (cmd) in install directory: mkportable.exe [OPTIONS] TARGETDIR. Use mkportable.exe --help to get all options. The portable version does not include GpgOL and GpgEX! Your certificates and settings are saved in the directory ‘home’ of portable version.
Please note: Do not use portable applications - especially crypto applications - on potentially infected systems.

The error I got: mkportable: file ‘gtk-update-icon-cache.exe.manifest’ not found in the source directory

How can I fix this? Couldn’t find the file so far.

many thanks, fw


thanks for your report. Looks like that file has been removed in gtk and the file list for mkportable was not updated accordingly.

As a workaround please just create an empty file with that name in the gpg4win installation directory.

Your report reached us a little to late for the 2.2.6 release but this will be fixed in the next version after that.

many thanks for the quick response.

after creating that file I was able to run this comand. will now test if it is working.
