SendKeys and task Scheduler Problem

Hello all I have a problem with a script that i wrote running in task scheduler.

if i am logged in and run it manually it works fine.
even through terminal services it works fine.

if i run it through a scheduleing program it is in a waiting state.  when i log in the cmd window is open and it is waiting for the sendkeys to work?  how can i get this to run properly

this is the command in the BATCH file i use to run the vb script:
wscript.exe //NoLogo decrypt.vbs | cmd.exe

Here is the acctual VBS file:
Wscript.Stdout.WriteLine "gpg --decrypt test.pgp > testout.txt"
CreateObject("WScript.Shell").SendKeys "test{ENTER}"
WScript.Sleep 5000
