GPG Mail Plugin won't install GPG Suite Beta 6 Mac OS X

I have a similar problem like the user in this thread before:

but in my case the GPG Mail Plugin won't install after installing the newest GPG Suite Beta 6 for Mac OS X. My actually system is Mac OS X version 10.9.5. I´ve tried all what reached my mind, like uninstall GPG Suite and reinstall, install MailPGP separate, delete MailBundles in ~/Library/Mail/ and many shutdowns between this process.
But it won´t work. In case of the separate installing of MailPGP return an Error Message: The Plugin won't work or will be damaged. In the other cases there was no change of condition. The picture that i attached shows the problem. I can do what i want but GPG Mail won't install, no matter how often i install the GPG Suite, that contains the GPG Mail Plugin.

Does anybody know where the problem could be and how to fix it?

    Hi Jasmin,

    we've seen this is very rare cases. Could you please

    • open
    • copy / paste the following defaults read EnableBundles
    • press enter

    Please post the output of that command.

    If the output value is „0“ please copy / paste the following in and execute the command with enter:

    defaults write EnableBundles -bool YES

    Then restart mail and let me know if GPGMail shows up as expected.

    If you might have moved your application to a subfolder or another place on your harddrive, please move it back to the default location, your programs folder, and re-install GPG Suite then.

    All the best,

    I´ve tried this. The first command says, that no Bundles exist there. After the second command, the output says: "1". After restart of the problem is still existing. GPG Mail won't show up. and GPG Keychain are together in my Application Folder. I´ve reinstall, shutdown, install, shutdown once again. Changeless.

    Any other ideas?

    The only solution that works for me at the moment is to install thunderbird with the Add-on enigmail. Not the best solution for me but better than nothing.

    Hi Jasmin,

    sorry for your troubles. Would you mind repeating the steps of uninstalling and re-installing GPG Suite Beta 6 and after that run the following command:

    ls -l /Library/Mail/Bundles/GPGMail.mailbundle
