Either set --homedir on the command line or in the options file.

Subject: Get gpg to use keyring files in the current directory
I'm trying to get gpg to create and use keyryring files in the current directory.
In e:\test I have this options file named test.conf :
If I cd to e:\test and use this command line:
gpg --gen-key --options test.conf
the keyrings are not created in the current directory, but in C:\Users\username\AppData\Roaming\gnupg
The options file is read, since the keyring files use the specified names.
I'm using gpg to encrypt small backup files which will be decrypted by non-tech-savvy users that do not usually use gpg. I'm going to store the keyrings ready for use on a USB-stick and will not know the absolute path to the keyfiles.
gpg (GnuPG) 2.0.29 (Gpg4win 2.3.0)
