invalid secretkey packet sequence error

I am new to encryption, but your sample projects are great and I am learning a lot.
I wrote a small app and was testing it and I came across this error:

"invalid secretkey packet sequence"

The app works greats with OpenPGP created keyrings, but when accessing my DesktopPGP keyrings, ONLY the secret keyring gives the error.

So I tried to open the keyrings with the sample 'PGPKeysDemo' you have provided, and I get the same error on the private key only.

I am referencing to my keyrings saved fron DesktopPGP directly and not exported keys, but the keyring.

Is there something I am not considering?

Can you please create a test keyring (i.e. create a couple of new keys and save them as a keyring) and if the keyring exposes the same problem, post this test keyring?

Sincerely yours

Thanks for your quick reply. I removed the keyrings and created new new keyring with the PGP Desktop (they don't have an easy way).
The problem was solved. Somehow the one keyring was corrupt. It was still being used and decrypted and encrypted in their software but was useless elsewhere.
Thanks again for your prompt response.
