Help needed - upgrading to Enigmail/GPG edition

I have Portable Thunderbird running on my USB drive, and have Enigmail and GnuPG working fine with it. Problem is, if I take it to any other computer than the one where I originally set it up the GPG stuff doesn't work.

I downloaded the new edition with Enigmail/GPG support, but the directory structure is totally different, and the help.html file does not seem to address the new structure. I need help in importing my mailboxes, address book, and keyrings.

TIA

Help still needed - GnuPG version

I have partial success to report, but still a problem.

I determined that the Profiles folder now lives under PortableThunderbird/data and so copied my profiles folder there. I also found a gnupg folder in the same place and copied my keyrings there. Now the program works as expected on my laptop (which still has gnupg.exe installed on the hard drive) but does not encrypt mail sent from other computers. I checked the preferences in the Thunderbird program and the GnuPG executable path points to the copy on the USB drive.

Does anybody have any ideas or successes to report getting this version working?
