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.
Die Gedanken sind frei. Ausnahmen regelt ein Bundesgesetz.
