GNUPGHOME on Win2000
Fri Apr 27 14:07:01 2001
since I'm quite unexperienced working on Windows (beside typing in word
and openning explorer :-) ), I would appreciate if someone out there has
some information about setting up the enviroment for GPG on Windows.
What I'm interested in is how can I change my default directory for the
keyrings. I've tried changing GNUPGHOME variable, but it's completely
ignoring me, no metter I do, it constantly looks at the c:/gnupg
directory. If I use --homedir option in the command line, it works fine,
but I would like if I could make it work automatically, like it works
perfectly on UNIX with GNUPGHOME variable.
I'm working on Win 2000, and the version of GNU PG is:
gpg (GnuPG) 1.0.4g-winpt
