Add it to your encryption command line

    ...\GnuPG\GPG" --ignore-time-conflict -q --yes --pgp7 -e -a -r %2 %1

or add

to gpg.conf

gpg.conf is just a text file of settings and options to gpg.  It normally is
found in the GnuPG homedir along with your keyring files. 'gpg --version' will
tell you the location being used by GnuPG. On Windows, the default location is
the expansion of %APPDATA%\GnuPG
