GPG4win keeps crashing after it makes the backup file?

Hello all, noob here trying to get everything figured out.

I’ve installed GPG4win & get all the way to typing in my passphrase & then it creates the backup file & then the entire GPG program crashes. (It does create the backup file before crashing) I’ve tried this 10 times with the same issue every time & I’ve even uninstalled & reinstalled the lite program.

What could the issue be?
