GPG Keychain refuses to execute

GPG Keychain 1.2b6

Attempting to run GPG Keychain results in a UnknownGPGError_Title. Attempting to run an update of the tool through GPG Preferences results in the same error. Attempting to run from the command-line results in the message "No matching processes belonging to you were found" (repeated twice) and a "Someone tampered..." window.

The above is based upon a fresh install of the latest GPGTools release.

Inspecting the running GPG Keychain process shows no odd libraries being loaded.

The system did have brew's gpg2 installed at one time in the past, but that install no longer exists.

What did you expect instead

It should work as it does on all of my other Macs.

    Hi Joe,

    could you please download and install our latest nightly build and see if the problem persists. That page also has sig and SHA1 to verify the download.

    If any errors persist with the nightly, it should now display the error message from gpg as expected.

    All the best, steve

    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.
