this has been discussed on the list numerous times, please check the
archives.  it is my understanding from the previous threads that you

gpg -o c:clearout.txt --passphrase-fd 0 --decrypt c:\cypherin.txt < passphr=

and that pipes don't work on windows.  i don't use windows so that is
about all i can tell you except that, as i said, numerous solutions
have been posted for this ranging from c to vb, iirc.
