    Hi k319,

    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.

    Should the problem persist, does this error show when you select a specific message or does selecting any message trigger the error message?

    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.
