The script you posted ("gpgwindir -r 483DC811 -e ~/src -p hilton") instructed gpgwindir to encrypt directory ~/src with key 483DC811 and at the same time to attempt a decrypt with a passphrase hilton. The program would be confused and not do anything.
There are 2 streams of functions
encryption: the syntax is
gpgwindir [-o "path"] -r "key" -e "path"
gpgwindir/d [-o "path"] -r "key" -e "path" if you want to delete unencrypted source file.
Note [-o "path"] is optional. If not provided, gpgwindir will encrypt to the same directory as source.
decrypt: the syntax is
gpgwindir [-o "path"] -p "passphrase" -d "path"
Note [-o "path"] is optional. If not provided, gpgwindir will decrypt to the same directory as encrypted source.
Ensure that paths are quoted
Ensure keys and passphrases are quoted or properly escaped if they have the space character.
I will happy to help you further if there still any issues.

How does this program work?
Here is what I tried:
gpgwindir -r 483DC811 -e ~/src -p hilton
Nothing happened ?? Where is the encrypted directory?
I also tried this:
gpgwindir -o ~/src-encrypt -r 483DC811 -e ~/src -p hilton
The syntax of the command is incorrect.
Invalid number of parameters
/home/Vibdog/src-encrypt was unexpected at this time.
Strange things going on here!
