Unable to add PGP encrypt pre-process step on target following upgrade

Upon attempting to add a PGP encryption pre-process step on a new target (under Design view), the application is throwing this error:

An unsolvable error has occurred. Please contact your administrator for more information

At the same time, we see this error in the MFT application log file (WLS_MFT1.out):
