Your home directory is different from "." (the current directory). And
there are no secret keys in your latter secring.gpg.

C:\Documents and Settings\matthew\Application Data\gnupg

your current directory:
C:\Documents and Settings\matthew\Desktop\spanish-test\GnuPG

"cd" to your homedir first and it will work (it does at least for me).
