Hi to all,
I've just tried to import my secret key (Windows PGP7.04) into gpg, but
it doesn't work...I'm surely wrong for something....

- -I exported my key (including secret key) from Win PGP into an ascii file.
- -Then I switched on Linux and wrote:

gpg --allow-secret-key-import myPGPkeywithPrivatekeyFromWindows.asc

- -I encrypted a file with

gpg --encrypt test

- - then I entered a proper ID for my PGP key...

- - it seems to encrypt it, it generates the gpg file, but when I try to
decrypt it with:


I obtain:

gpg: encrypted with 2048-bit ELG-E key, [...] 
gpg: decryption failed: secret key not available

Why...? I didn't find anything on the FAQ document, that's why I bother you
