In addition to the note about the missing argument to passphrase-file, it might 
also be that you are running into:


Using the task scheduler GNUPG has a different Home Directory, so you might 
want to parse the --homedir parameter to specify directly which home directory 
(the directory with the keys etc.) should be used.
