Actually I have a working setup on Windows 10, but here I use another 
terminal emulator: MobaXterm.
And in the settings of MobaXterm I enabled SSH forwarding.
As of now I don't want to continue using MobaXterm on Windows 11, but
using Windows Terminal.
I can run ssh-add.exe -L in Windows PowerShell and get the correct SSH 
public key fetched from secure card.
