Using the OpenPGP Card on Unix && Win7

I'm using the OpenPGP Card on Unix (FreeBSD) and on my Ubuntu mobile
phone (see
mostly for storing credentials with the password manager 'pass' and using them
from the browser, and as well for signing mails.

At work I have to use a Win7 desktop and OutLook for the company mails
and FreeBSD with GnuPG must run in a Vbox, which works fine with the OpenPGP
Card too.

I'd like to use the same Card with OutLook (please don't blame me :-))
and have already installed gpg4win-3.0.0.exe which seems to work
together with OutLook.

Before digging into all the details by my own and esp. because in Windows I'm only a
DAU(*), is there some step by step guide to configure the OpenPGP Card in
Windows and using the files from the GNUPGHOME on FreeBSD in Windows?



DAU(*): This is German spelled for "Dümmster Anzunehmender User" (the most
stupid imaginable user)
