Sorry that I write here, but my problem is seriously and I can`t find any solution.

We use GPG for Win latest version of GPG and GPG Shell. But today something strange happend and we can`t decrypt some file that are encrypted by others. We have them public key, but we get “decryption failed: secret key not available” when we want to decrypt it.

    Hey David, no problem. If I knew what to suggest I'd be happy to help. But I'm not running any version of windows.

    You might wanna get in touch with the gpg4win guys:

    Hope this helps,

    Thank you very much Steve :) I hope they can help me :)

    My problem is strange because it`s looks like we lose our secret key but why in this case we can open some other encrypted files.
