Does this work with the older gpg4win 2.2.1? ( 
http://files.gpg4win.org/gpg4win-2.2.1.exe )

Might be a regression in the new version please let us know if this is the 

Otherwise the debug output of scdaemon might be interesting:

Add the following lines to %APPDATA%/gnupg/scdaemon.conf and provide the 
resulting log file for debugging purposes, where somedirectory is the name of 
some directory in which you can write files.

debug 2048
log-file <somedirectory>\scdlog.txt

You can then kill gpg-agent (which will automatically kill scdaemon.exe) and 
try again. It should write something in the log file.
