Don't use a relative path for GNUPGHOME unless you use gnupg 2.1.

Regarding those portable applications: 

     On Windows systems it is possible to install GnuPG as a portable
     application.  In this case only this command line option is
     considered, all other ways to set a home directory are ignored.

     To install GnuPG as a portable application under Windows, create an
     empty file name 'gpgconf.ctl' in the same directory as the tool
     'gpgconf.exe'.  The root of the installation is than that
     directory; or, if 'gpgconf.exe' has been installed directly below a
     directory named 'bin', its parent directory.  You also need to make
     sure that the following directories exist and are writable:
     'ROOT/home' for the GnuPG home and 'ROOT/usr/local/var/cache/gnupg'
     for internal cache files.
