I created a VM instance in Oracle Cloud, I downloaded private and public keys locally.

When want to import in Putty the private key downloaded, I got:

enter image description here

I know but I didn't touch private key file and I followed their steps but those are old steps.

The private key look like:

-----BEGIN PRIVATE KEY-----
MIIEvgIBADANBgkqhkiG9w0BAQEFAASCBKgwggSkAgEAAoIBAQDgeq6QBHOc3t0W
...
...
-----END PRIVATE KEY-----

How to solve it ?

PS:

I tried with Conversion > Import key:

And I got same error message:

The "Load" button only accepts PuTTY's native .PPK format. But your key is in OpenSSH (PKCS#8) format, so you'll need to use the Conversions → Import key menu option to load it.
