Interesting, using GPG4win v1.0.8 and the bundled WinPT, the key manager, I
tried importing a pgp-key from a friend of mine. It said "No valid OpenPGP
data found". I found this weird...

Googling and checking for GPG and PGP compatibilty FAQs showed that the
PGP-keys should be compatible with GnuPG, only known problems were with pre-v5
PGP-key as I understood it. The friend's key was made with PGP v8. This is the
only PGP-key I have access to try importing public keys with, so it *may* be
something with the pgp-key.

Is it a known problem with importing PGP-keys to GPG4win at all? 

I'm new both to GPG4win and this list, so pls excuse my ignorance. 8-}
