Problem with migration from Enigmail (TB 68 to 78)

Hello, I am asking for help with Enigmail migration. I guess the legacy version 78 is required to port the keys from Enigmail to the new PGP format. But I can't find this version anywhere. If I take version 91 directly and try to import my private key, I get an error message even though the key is correct.

Surely there is a workaround for the problem, but my English is too bad to really understand the discussions here.
Can someone please give me a hint where I can find the correct information or versions?
Or do I have to use the "Platform Updater"? (Never used it so far).

Thanks a lot!!

It's archived in our SourceForge project here:

I would suggest backing up at each step. It's unlikely you can get much help for doing 2-3 year old email client upgrades.

Sometimes, the impossible can become possible, if you're awesome!

new key

I did not manage to import any keys, regardless how old into the new pgp system included in the TB. Only new created keys did work for me so far.
