Decrypt Issue

Hello.  Long story, short:

Mainframe calls .bat file that calls C# application that calls second .bat file to call GnuPG to decrypt a file. Once decrypted, other stuff happens, e-mails are sent, blah, blah, blah.

Here's the issue: When the mainframe calls the .bat file to start the process, the decryption returns:
Decrypt error :gpg: armor header: Version: GnuPG v1.4.9 (AIX)
gpg: public key is 07F7097A
gpg: encrypted with ELG-E key, ID 07F7097A
gpg: decryption failed: secret key not available

if I list the keys on the server that this is running I see the key listed.

Here's the goofy part: If I login to the server with the credentials that the mainframe uses to call the first .bat file, and manually run the .bat file that starts the whole process, it runs correctly.
