In the Local Service user's hive create a Registry key:
Within this key create the following value
There are other values, but HomeDir is the more important. The GnuPG installer
only creates these values for the user running the installer.
Then make sure that the directory %APPDATA%\GnuPG exists and contains the
keyring files: pubring.gpg, secring.gpg, and trustdb.gpg; containing the secret
key (and its public half) needed for decryption and any public keys needed for
Being the Local Service user, this profile is probably also local, so
%APPDATA%\GnuPG probably expands to
"C:\Documents and Settings\Local Service\Application Data\GnuPG"
