transfer key pair from pgp command line to pgp desktop ?

Created: 07 Nov 2012 | 2 comments

Hello,

I created a key pair using PGP command line 9 on machine A.

I need to copy this key to a  machine  B, which has PGP desktop.

On machine A, i can export the key pair, like this : pgp --export-key-pair 0xxxxxx --output c:\key.asc

Then on Machine B, I try :"file\import personal certificate" but nothing happens.

Also, do i need to reset the passphrase ?

Thanks,Peter

To import the key to PGP Desktop, just double click on the exported .asc file.  Then in PGP Desktop, open the PGP Keys module on the top left.  Right click on the key and select Key Properties.  Set Trust to Implicit since you have also imported the private key component.
