That is much better for sure.  Saves time and reduces chances for error.  I
would add that to the batch file, and I especially like that it is a
temporary setting.

Note that there is also an environment variable GNUPGHOME which might be
more convenient than always repeating the --homedir option.

  set GNUPGHOME=u:\gnupg
  gpg --versions
  gpg --list-keys

gives the same results as above.



Die Gedanken sind frei.  Ausnahmen regelt ein Bundesgesetz.
