This suggests your gnupg2 is not a cygwin program. Unfortunately,
interoperability of non-cygwin programs with cygwin terminal I/O is
limited. You might want to use the winpty wrapper.
I installed gnupg2 and several versions of pinentry.
When I try to use it with engmail on thunderbird, I don't get prompted
for a passphrase.
My engmail setup works with a standalone version of gnupg2.
it also used to work with cygwin gnupg1 (before engmail required gnupg2).
When I invoke gnupg2 from the command line:
xeon:/cygdrive/u:502: gpg2 --output fred.good --decrypt fred.gpg
gpg: encrypted with 4096-bit RSA key, ID A3791E7DD935A424, created
"Jeff Deifik <email@example.com>"
gpg: public key decryption failed: No such device or address
gpg: decryption failed: No secret key
I should get something like:
You need a passphrase to unlock the secret key for
