    Hi George,

    sorry for not responding earlier.

    GPGTools is OS X only and you are on the support platform for that software. If you want to get in touch with the developers of gpg4win, their site can be found here:

    Not sure how gpg4win works UI wise but in order to decrypt an encrypted message, you need the correct secret key. If you do not have that, decryption will not work. So either the wrong public key was used, or you lost your secret key. There might be other causes of course.

    Hope you can get this solved.

    All the best,
