I'm reposting a question[1] asked by Shweta Tyagi in a different thread,
so it is in its own thread. I feel Shweta might have chosen to seek
their answer elsewhere after they only got unhelpful responses there,
and I'd like to rectify that.

Shweta asked:

Hi All,

gpg --batch --passphrase-fd n and it stops popup which asks for the
passphrase. but when I run this command on window server 12 it's not
working its always show popup for the passphrase. can someone please
help me how can I stop popup on window server 12.
