The key file format is too new. Please try the previous version of PuTTY.

ok - we will try that workaround. Any idea when the issue will be resolved?

In the latest version of PuttyGen, Go to Key in the top menu select Parameters for saving key file select the radio button for PPK file version 2 and press ok.
Then you can import the key and save as ppkv2 or create new keys in the old format.

Replying to ocephaso:

In the latest version of PuttyGen, Go to Key in the top menu select Parameters for saving key file select the radio button for PPK file version 2 and press ok.
Then you can import the key and save as ppkv2 or create new keys in the old format.

Thanks, good info here. I didn't know you could simply tell keygen to use the old format for now.
