I'm pretty new to using GnuPG as well. I use GnuPG 1.0.6 with GnuPG shell
v1.77. My PGP is Personal Security 7.0.3. Here's what I do when I want to
import secret keys from PGPkeys...
In PGPkeys, I Export the key(s) into "C:\gnupg" (putting a check mark in
"include private key(s)" before I export.
Then, I open a DOS box, and type the following:
cd C:\gnupg <then press "enter">
gpg --import --allow-secret-key-import c:\gnupg\[filename].asc <"enter">
This seems to work for me. I hope it helps.
