this is the community support platform for all things GPG Suite (OpenPGP on macOS).
If you are seeing an error about "no pinentry" maybe a re-install can help? But that is a wild guess, as I am not too familiar with the inner workings of GPG4win.
For any questions regarding gpg4win, please see their website about obtaining support. There are various resources like mailing list as well as user forum.
If you find a solution, it would be great if you could crosslink the Gpg4win thread, so other users running into a similar issue will quickly find the solution.

I tried re-installing and it works but only momentarily. When I reboot
again, it doesn't work. I have posted on the other forum though. I will
crosslink when I find a solution there.

That would be great. Good luck and hope you find a solution soon.
