gpg-agent problem

borje.emilsson

Dear help / Börje 200315

During installation of the latest Octave version, a software error kept reappearing

"gpg-agent.exe has stopped working"

This .exe is located in c:\octave\octave-5.2.0\usr\bin

My Windows 10 Home 64-bits (Microsoft 2019) is installed on HW

               Acer Aspire A515-51G i5-8250 CPU @ 1.6 GHz with 8 GB RAM

 

After uninstallation of Octave the message disappeared
