Firstly,  download the IDEA library from

Next, create directory named "lib" in the above HomeDir
and unzip idea.dll to the directory "lib" you created.

Lastly,  write the line "load-extension lib\idea" (without
quotation) in your configuration file gpg.conf.

Do't forget to hit ENTER at the end of the line
mentioned above.

Then gpg.exe will show the message "Cipher: IDEA, ..." 
when you type the command "gpg --version" in the 
command prompt.
