Hmmm, and where is the options file? Assuming it is in c:/temp you can either use "gpg --homedir c:/temp" or set the homedir in the Registry (see README.W32 on how to do it). However, I wonder why you can access the floppy but you are not allowed to have a private directory other than temp - It seems that you do not have full control over this machine and therefore it may be not a so good idea to use GnuPG (with secret keys) on that box.
