to expire and it says the functionality will be reduced to that of PGP
Freeware. All we do with it is encrypt files (not emails), so I think
this is ok. I'm not sure if the PGP Desktop gui interface will stop
working or not, so thought we could use GnuPG and Gpg4Win which we
currently use on another project to replace PGP Desktop.

I was unable to 'trim' this Reply cause You have a word wrap issue.
However; for what You are doing, the Freeware version should perform
just Fine. Answer to Main Question; YES, You can Import your PGP
Keyrings into GnuPG. Fact of the matter; I know several individuals
using *one* Keyring for both PGP & GPG.
Personally, I prefer GnuPG over PGP for several reasons; the most
primary being that I find more functionality in GnuPG.
