Not serveral issues, Just one:
gpg: E:\\Test\\ECSI_Perkins_Loan_Test\\TESTbldpromIG.csv: encryption failed: 
No public key

For encryption gnupg needs to find the public key of the recipient. This key is 
contained in pubring.gpg.

GnuPG looks for this file by default in %APPDATA%\gnupg

This apperantly expands in your environment to: 

To change this you can add --homedir <path_to_gnupg_homedir> and gnupg will 
then look in that directory for the keyring.

For example:
-> Create a directory c:\gnupg
-> Copy the pubring.gpg (and gpg.conf if you have options in there) into that 
-> extend your command to include --homedir c:\gnupg in the arguments.

Now as long as that Batch user has read access to c:\gnupg this should work.
