Involving Cygwin is yet another non-trivial hurdle to take. I think it's
best if you get it working on Windows first, and only then try to
involve another layer in the form of Cygwin.

You can see what happens when you use gpg.exe from the Windows command
prompt. If that works out, see what happens in the GUI manager(s)
included with gpg4win-3.0.0.exe. Assuming it does include GUI software :-).



I use the GNU Privacy Guard (GnuPG) in combination with Enigmail.
You can send me encrypted mail if you want some privacy.
