Other people will chime in with precise folder paths. I no longer have
access to any Windows XP machines, so I can't -- but a little
exploration should reveal them.
Somewhere on your system you'll have a file called "secring.gpg". In
that directory you'll have some (or all) of --
Copy over all these files except random_seed. Don't re-use random_seed:
sharing the same random_seed between two different machines can
potentially be unwise.
On the new machine, just install GnuPG from http://www.gpg4win.org. On
the new machine, find where GnuPG has placed its gpg.conf file. Drop
all the files from the old machine (except random_seed) into that
folder, overwriting if necessary.
With that, your migration should be complete.
