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
