GPG problem Urgent please

Here's some VB script code that decrypts data that I use for my MS
      GpgCmd2 = "gpg -q -o bankstmts.txt --yes --decrypt "& s
      Set WshShell = WScript.CreateObject("WScript.Shell")
      retcode = WshShell.Run(GpgCmd2, 1, True)
It doesn't use a passphrase so you'll have to modify the following batch
file code (that's been posted previously) to work with VB Script.

@rem Watch it! - on Windows do NOT include space between %1 and the pipe
(|) - will get bad
@rem passphrase error

echo %1| gpg --homedir %2 --batch --yes --passphrase-fd 0 --always-trust
--sign --recipient %3 --encrypt %4

M$hell.   I'm hoping to cobble together enough spare parts to make a
box for just a file server.   Right now, we're a Micro$oft shop with a
Freeware budget. It's not conducive to getting anything done.
