It should have been installed by the default installation.
(In this very moment I don't have a test installation accessible, so I cannot 
check, maybe someone can help me out and tell us where pinentry-qt4.exe is on

There is no need for the setup wizard to know the password as it is another 
component that has it. My suggestion would be to improve it to let gpg-agent
ask the password via a pinentry application.
