Error After installation

Hey everyone, so I go to install my GPGTools, and after the installation it says the GPGTools weren't found and they should be installed from this site! I downloaded the tools package from here and did everything like I am supposed to.

    Hi Christian,

    very sorry to hear that, also it's pretty strange.
    Could you run the installation again and follow these steps to produce an installation log for us:

    1.) While installing, please click on "Menu: Window > Installer Log" (or press CMD+L)
    2.) switch to "Show All Logs"

    See for a screenshot.

    That would be very helpful to fix your problem, thanks!

    As you see in your screenshot the installer is set to show "Errors only". Could you please set it to show "All Logs" and re-run the installation.
    Sorry for the effort, but it helps debugging immensely

    No problem! Thank YOU! I will do anything to get this resolved!

    Since the error log was so long, I went ahead and put it in PasteBin

    Uh boy, just guessing here, but are you installing on a case-sensitive partition?

    Lol, I'm totally sorry. I don't know who to check or know if I have that.

    Hehe, no problem. Let's try something else.
    Could you run the installer from
    It's the most current version, also includes a newer GPGMail.
    From the logs I can tell that setting the permission on the MacGPG installation failed and that's why you're not allowed to run the gpg2 executable.
    Unfortunately it's hard to tell why.

    Let me know if the nightly installer worked.

    Unfortunately, that did not work.

    Dang, not good. Could you do the same thing with the logs again?
    I'd like to have a look at them and see if those reveal more.
    Also, it can't hurt to open "Fesplatten Dienstprogramme" and repair permissions.
