Please look in the status bar of your desktop. You should see a (blinking) tab for the Pinentry. Unfortunately it is not always possible to get the Pinentry into the foreground and Windows will instead show it in the status bar.

I am experiencing this error too and did not see any way to get to the Pinentry window. Only after killing the hung outlook process did the Pinentry window pop up.

@PaulJ this sounds like a different problem. For you it does not show. In this report the pinentry open's in the background for file sign / encrypt.

I can reproduce this sometimes. I belive the Problem is that I added the "Popup" code from Pinentry to Kleopatra, too because I wanted to ensure that the Key Resolution from GpgOL opens in the foreground.

Fixed with Kleopatra was too agressive in the dialogs and always tried to stay on top. This makes sense for the Certificate selection dialog in GpgOL but not for the file dialog.
