The profile path contains Chinese characters, which makes it impossible to determine the home directory.

When the Windows 10 administrator account has a Chinese name, it can cause Chinese characters to appear in the Gpg4win profile path.

This can cause Gpg4win to not find the profile file. “The home directory of gnupg cannot be determined. Please specify the GNUPGHOME environment variable.”

Welcome to this forum, @WongWong!

Which version of Gpg4win are you using?

gpg4win 4.3.0

Hi @WongWong,
thanks for the report!

Do you know an easy way to create a profile path with such characters on a German or Englisch Windows 10 system?

Do you know if the problem is also there or Windows 11?

Best Regards,
