Issue: PATH Error after installing Enigmail Plugin with Thunderbird under Windows 8
The error that we got was
“Enigmail: Unable to locate GnuPG executable in the PATH. Make sure you have set the GnuPG executable path correctly in the OpenPGP Preferences.”
Step 1: Hit windows button and type path. Click on settings on right hand side and Click Edit System Environment Variables
Step 2: Click on Environment Variables.
Step 3: Click on PATH under User Variables and hit Edit.
Step 4: At the end of the Variable value add the path to your gpa.exe for example in my case it is “C:\Program Files (x86)\GNU\GnuPG\gpa.exe”
Step 5: Click on Path under System Variables and add the path to the pub directory of GnuPG in it for example in my case it is “C:\Program Files (x86)\GNU\GnuPG\pub”
Step 6: Restart
Voila ! it works now
