Hello Hauke Laging ,

Really thanks for the mail , but still am facing the same issue .

when i try to import my public and private key once again through Command 
prompt ,CMD say's that my keys are already in keyring .

I have  one query on Key IDs,
while am importing massage show that Key ID file for both the keys are 
same but as fare i knew there is two different ID for different keys.

Public Key ID  : D36AB872
Private Key ID : E718CCAF

Even my error show that Private key is missing.

My error log is 
> gpg: encrypted with RSA key, ID E718CCAF
> gpg: decryption failed: No secret key 

Kindly comment on the same and let me know your suggestions 

CMD command what ever i tried as follow ,

Private Query Import  :
C:\>gpg --import NavtechKey_sec.asc

gpg: key D36AB872: already in secret keyring
gpg: Total number processed: 1
gpg:   secret keys read: 1
gpg:  secret keys unchanged: 1

Public Query Import :
C:\>gpg --import NavtechKey_pub.asc

gpg: key D36AB872: "Navtech (Navtech Encryption) 
<Qantas.ifsmetrics at>" not changed
gpg: Total number processed: 1
gpg:  unchanged: 1

Edit Key :

E:\>gpg --edit-key Navtech

1) either the application runs as a different user so that the secret key 
not contained in the application's keyring

2) or there is a problem with gpg-agent (the key is protected by a 
and gpg-agent does not know the passphrase)
