[Fixed] Thunderbird Portable 2.0.0.17 Installer Removes GPG

I've had problems with the Enigmail extension. It says it can not find the gpg executable. I've just updated to TBP 2.0.017 so I go check for the executable and find nothing in the App\gpg directory so reinstalled the gpg for TBP and it solved the problem so I assume that the update has wiped the entire App directory before installing the new one. Is it the right behaivour or is it a bug?

Confirmed

This is a bug in the current release when we moved to the new installer. You can reinstall GPG using the installer here:

I've updated your subject to track this as a bug for the next release.

Not Us

Nothing to do with us. The installer doesn't alter the prefs.js (where Enigmail stores its settings) and it doesn't touch the GPG files anymore.
