I am interested in NOT put private keys in disk. I like the idea, put
private keys in smartcard.

 How to use the Fellowship
how to use OpenPGP card with gpg. But in section 2.3.2,
PC/SC(Personal computer/Smart card), there are only two lines:


>To use PC/SC make sure you disable CCID by passing the --disable-ccid
option to GnuPG.

My questions are:

1. If I use command

    gpg --disable-ccid

    I got message

    gpg: invalid option "--disable-ccid"

    (PS, I use GnuPG 2.0.17 in Windows 7)

   What is wrong?

2. Are GnuPG 2.0.17, Windows(Operation System), OpenPGP SmartCard
100 PU USB PC/SC IC card reader compatible ?
