GPG 2017.2: rejecting my passphrase

Randolph's Avatar

Still running MacOS 10.12.6

When I create a new encrypted message, send it to myself, and attempt to decrypt it, my passphrase is rejected. There is no apparent reason why; my passphrase and keys have not changed.

    Followup: I have reinstalled GPG. The note says to mention "xpc service is not working properly."

    Hi Randolph,

    welcome to the GPGTools support platform. Sorry you are having problems using GPG Suite.

    Could you please download and install our latest GPG Suite nightly build and see if the problem persists. That page also has sig and SHA256 to verify the download.

    All the best,

    Disclaimer: This is a development version which has not been thoroughly tested yet - bugs or crashes are to be expected. Thanks for helping us test.
