I’m getting “Failed Decrypting” error, trying to decrypt files that I could decrypt successfully before the latest update v 1.4.3 (1410). The same file that successfully decrypted last week no longer decrypts successfully. The keys are up-to-date and still active (I did an “update from key server” to make sure the key is current).

The failure occurs when I highlight a file and select OpenPGP: Decrypt file

System settings appear to be correct and nothing has been changed in weeks (from the time I first successfully decypted PGP files)

    Hi Dean,

    welcome to the GPGTools support platform. Sorry you are having problems using GPG Suite. Excuse the late reply - the last weeks were very busy with the release of GPG Suite 2018.2 and 2018.3.

    Does the problem persist with 2018.3? And if yes, can you please send a screenshot of the error message you are seeing.
