how to change gpg keyfolder?

I have managed so fat to install the enigmail and gpg portable with it, make the config to suit my needs and import my pgp leys etc.

The dir where now the keyfiles and importanat the conf file is placed by the installation procedure is :

....\PortableApps\ThunderbirdPortable\Data\gpg

wokrs OK, but does anybody know where this path is defined and if it is possible to change it?
Probably defined by one of the script files, but which one to search for?

The idea is for example to place the keyrings and conf file in a encrypted container like truecrypt container or similar.

Look in

Look in .\ThunderbirdPortable\Other\ThunderbirdPortableSource\ThunderbirdPortable.nsi

Note: You'll need to recompile the launcher after changing the path and that's not allowed since John has permission to use the Mozilla icons/graphics and you don't.

path fixed?

so the path is definitely fixed in the software? No way to change it?
I can not compile anything , have no compiler and similar software avaiable, but is ther any way to make it configurable?
