I think that gpg-preset-passpharse is not the right tool and you either
should not set a passphrase for the key or use the gpg option
--pinentry-mode=loopback. However, I can distribute
gpg-preset-passpharse with the next Windows installer (2.1.13) -
hopefully next week.
There is a workaround, though:
gpg-connect-agent 'PRESET_PASSPHRASE <keygrip> -1 <passphrase>' /bye
The <keygrip> is what you would also use with gpg-preset-passphrase.
The <passphrase> is, well, you passphrase which needs to be
percent-escaped (e.g. "foo far" -> "foo%20bar"). If you do not want to
type the passphrase, gpg-connect-agent has a simple script language
which can help here.
