Yes, gpgsm is the reasons why I did the port at all.  The stuff is
currently used in a server environment to encrypt/decrypt large S/MIME
messages.  It works, but it is hard to setup.

Quite possible that gpg has not been converted.  You may take the
gpg-agent from that package and modify a gpg 1.4 for Windows.  The
main thing to do is to add the socket emulation
(gnupg-1.9/util/w32_afunix.[ch]).  Of course it would be better to
trun the gpg-agent into a system service.
