Even on Windows, you should use the command line to generate the key pair in expert mode
Code: Select all
gpg --gen-key --expert
and select option "RSA (set your own capabilities)". This will create a key w/o subkeys. Once the keypair is created, you can use the commands from my previous post to export it to an ASCII armored file.

This is not possibly any more with 0.6.0x Revision 8551. Do I need to change the files in "Data/pgp" to change my key to an existing one?
