Thank you fir your Help. Yes we are using putty only. Not any Graphical. But it complains that
You need a Passphrase to protect your secret key.
gpg-agent: can't connect to the PIN entry module: IPC connect call failed
gpg-agent: command get_passphrase failed: No pinentry
gpg: problem with the agent: No pinentry
gpg: Key generation canceled.
We do not know why it gives this error when QTPinentry is not required.

It might be worth to check whether there is an interest in running gpg on the server via Putty and have Putty forward the communication of gpg to a gpg-agent+pinentry running on Windows.
I can't understand why anyone wants to use a Windows box to admin Unix servers, but the success of Putty shows that we Unix folks will soon be minority.
Die Gedanken sind frei. Ausnahmen regelt ein Bundesgesetz.
