I have uninstalled the standalone version of gnupg2 before I did this.
It seems most likely that the version of gpg2 being invoked is a cygwin
It fails to find your private key, so it is quite obviously not in a
place where gpg2 expects to find it.
I have my keys stored in $HOME/.gnupg which is where gnupg v1 expects them.
