In general no.  However there might be a problem with the Windows
version.  There is a workaround which will work for sure:

  gpg -e <message >message.gpg

  gpg <message.gpg >message

This way gpg does not know about the files but takes any input of any
size and pipes it to the output.  Opening the files and the
redirection is done by Windows (cmd.exe).
