On windows several .bat scripts call find_python.bat to find an appropriate python.exe. find_python.bat has no specific support for virtual envs, and usually ends up calling py.exe to find python.exe. Due to virtual envs not including a py.exe, this effectively ignores having an activated virtual env.

It is currently possible to build with the specific python that one wants by setting the PYTHON env var. However, this is a simplistic and non-standard solution compared to virtual envs.

IMO when there is an active virtual env, these scripts should certainly use python.exe from it!
