@Ennovy
Thank you for your vote!

I edited Requirements, billon is right and Crypto Notepad really needs .NET Framework 4.0 to be installed in order to run.

Edit
I edited Requirements once again after I got reply from the developer, who is very responsive on feature requests (GPG support - thanks to webfork!, Drag&Drop support, URL and mailto: detection).
