Help for a newby - gen-key error message

This is a Windows 7 question:


I was able to mouse around in Google and found out how to modify the proper
PATH environment variable. Therefore, at the command prompt I'm able to
execute gpg without having to migrate to the directory where gpg lives. The
good news is that I'm able to run "gpg --version" and get gpg to talk to me.
The bad news is that I am getting an error message when I invoke gpg
--gen-key at the command prompt. There error is <gpg home
directory>\gpg.conf:5: invalid auto-key-locate list. I've re-installed gpg,
but that did not help.


Any ideas for fixing the problem?


Thank you in advance.
