Unfortunately, I doubt anyone will read this in a few weeks. Werner posted this info back in January, I believe: gpg --s2k-cipher-algo=CAST5 --s2k-digest-algo=SHA1 --compress-algo=1 - --edit-key keyid where keyid is your keyid. Remove the password, then do: gpg --export-secret-key --no-comment -a keyid >keyid_secert.asc Then copy it to the windows machine, add it, restore the passphrases (on both). gpg --edit-key keyid > passwd > save

The problem is you are using as your s2k cipher Blowfish, which PGP does not and will not support. __ L.
