Hi,
I try to import a key genereted by SBB, to a pgp software version 6.5 from Pgp.com. I got an error during the import phase.

Question: Is it possible to configurate my key, so it can be imported by an old pgp software?

string fullUserName = userName + " <" + EMail + ">";
TElPGPSecretKey secretKey = new TElPGPSecretKey();
secretKey.UseOldPackets = true;
secretKey.WriteOldPrefix = true;
secretKey.Generate(pgpData.PassPhrase, 1024, SBPGPConstants.__Global.SB_PGP_ALGORITHM_PK_DSA, 2048, SBPGPConstants.__Global.SB_PGP_ALGORITHM_PK_ELGAMAL_ENCRYPT, fullUserName, 0);
keyring.AddSecretKey(secretKey);

Thank you for contacting us.

As far as I remember, setting UseOldPackets to true and UseNewFeatures to false should help (Mykola will correct me if I am wrong). What exactly error you are receiving from PGP 6.5?

UseNewFeatures? Can't find any property with that name.

I solved it. I deleted the keyring so i got a clear state to start from. And now i can import my SBB key.
