The Python docs faq says that due to a bug in Windows NT's cmd.exe, the output redirection and piping won't work when started from file extension.

This is actually fixed in Windows, but the fix is disabled by default, and you need to enable it in regedit, the keyword is "InheritConsoleHandles".

Proof & Details:

It would be great if the docs could refer to this fix, as the docs is the major source of information for many.
