OpenPGP Smart card support has been in GnuPG on Windows for sometime now.
Prebuilt binaries from gnupg.org should work fine. Cygwin binaries for 22.214.171.124
or greater should also work.
The only thing you might need in the way of drivers is the reader manufacturer's
drivers to allow it to talk to the Smart Card service, scardsvr.exe.
I'm using an SCM SCR335 USB reader that came with the card. No problems.
