since few days we face of an issue to decrypt files (.gpg) with GNUPG 1.4.9

We get error:


gpg: fatal: open(CONOUT$) failed: The system cannot find the file specified.

secmem usage: 0/0 bytes in 0/0 blocks of pool 0/32768


If issue was due to < the file specified > I think we should get this error :

gpg: can't open `FILE_SPECIFIED'
gpg: decrypt_message failed: file open error


Decryption is processed by a program launched with a Windows service account.

Manually with my personal account, it's OK I can decrypt, but not with the program

I have keyrings under:


Could you help me please?

GNUPG 1.4.9

Windows server 2008 R2
