I’m unable to decrypt pgp message, I get “The “OpenPGP:Decrypt Selection” service could not be used because the application did not respond to a request for services” (?)
It was working fine yesterday and has been for almost 2 years. Nothing has changed on my macbook pro since yesterday so I can’t think what the problem might be. Please could you advise me in this matter? Thanks so much.

Expected
It to decrypt, it always has done fine for the past (almost) 2 years.

Additional info
I’m running OS X El Capitan version 10.11.6 and it has been that way for some time. Thank you

    Hi Luke,

    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. That page also has sig and SHA256 to verify the download.

    After that restart your system and see if the problem persists.

    All the best,
    steve

    Hi Luke,

    this issue should be fixed. It would be great if you could download our latest nightly GPG Suite. That page also has sig and SHA1 to verify the download.

    Then check if you are still running into this problem.

    Should the problem persist, please do let us know and re-open this discussion.
