    PGP in Windows XP

    Hi,
    I tried to install PGP Freeware in WinXP Pro and was an awfull experience. First collided with the firewall, and then blocked all the system. I had to reinstall WinXP almost from scratch. I want to use some PGP with my mail and so on...
    Have anybody had an experience with this issue? Anybody solved? How can I use PGP with no problem?
    Thanx

    Re: PGP in Windows XP

    Is "PGP" Windows XP ready?

    You need to check the source to see if it is. You might also post the source here, for there is several types of software that uses the PGP as a title.

    Now running HP Pavilion a6528p, with Win7 64 Bit OS.

    Re: PGP in Windows XP

    I have tried several versions of pgp in WInXP, none of which seem to work right. Some won't install (7.0.3), some say they haven't been tested under XP but install anyway (7.1), some install without problems (6.5.8).

    The biggest problem I see is with pgp disk: when mounting a disk, if it works at all, it will be mounted to a drive without a drive letter (it's just a space in the drive list).

    Once mounted, everything seems to work OK, but I haven't done any testing yet beyond what I described. I haven't decide which version to use yet.

    Weird, that 7.1 works well under Win2K, but not XP.

    Re: PGP in Windows XP

    About three months ago there was a Beta version of PGP available that worked under WinXP. At the time NAI said that they would be releasing it in February 2002. Since then they have dropped all support for PGP and when we wrote to them to ask about the status of the XP version of PGP the reply was short and unhelpful.
