GnuPG and WinPT portable

It's great that there is the possibility to use the bundle Thunderbird with gnugpg and enigmail portable. But if you want to use gnupg with some other programs, e.g. psi, you need a keymanager, too. So you can use winpt, but you have to install.

I think it would be good to have standalone gnupg and standalone winpt, or a bundle with standalone gnupg and winpt.

There exists the bundle "GnuPG basics" with gnupg and winpt, but it's not portable: http://people.freenet.de/rose-indorf/

It's possible for you to do that - and, of course, are you interested?

ooooh?

Silly idea? Doesn't work? Not necessary? Exists already?
Great silence...

lots of interest from me

I would LOVE to have WinPT and GPG packaged as a portable app. I have a version of this, but have to change settings when I use it on a different machine.

Me, too!

I'd also like to have WinPT packaged, but it doesn't appear that there are any command-line switches for it to override the defaults (I've been looking into it).

Frankly, if this is going to be done, IMO both it and Thunderbird Portable with Enigmail should be configured to share gpg binaries & keyrings to eliminate unnecessary duplication...

If I'm able to find new info re WinPT, I will certainly keep it updated.
