Well, I did the following test:

If I issue:

gpg --keyserver hkp://whatever --recv-keys 99999999

then gpgkeys_hkp.exe does not start due to a missing dll.

But, if I issue:

gpg --keyserver hkp://whatever --exec-path "%PATH%" --recv-keys 99999999

then all works OK. So, it seems the problem is in the path created by 
exec.c... Maybe due to the blank spaces in the folder names...
