On Windows you can't use if with OpenSSH. AFAIK, OpenSSH is not
available as native application but only as a Cygwin binary. This could
be made work somehow but it has not been done. However, Putty is
supported: If you add "enable-putty-support" to gpg-agent.conf,
gpg-agent will work as a Pageant replacement. You should fire up
gpg-agent before Pageant, though.
Die Gedanken sind frei. Ausnahmen regelt ein Bundesgesetz.
