just installed the recent 27-11 update and now get a "something went wrong, ... problem with the config file. Please contact ..."

If I deinstall / reinstall, will this delete my personal key? Advice appreciated.

    It will not delete any key if you uninstall GPGTools. Could you please provide us more information? See

    Hi Alex,

    Problem solved ... But still strange.

    I installed the first gpg package under my user account.

    The problem then occurred when I then updated the package under the administrator account (I keep these accounts normally separated)... Error message

    I then re-installed over the previous installation again in my user account. Problem solved, works like a charm.

    Issue may be a permission issue.

    Thanks anyway for your reply.
