I closed #41753 as a duplicate of this.  

On that issue, Eryk Sun said "The underlying subprocess.Popen class was updated in 3.8 to support path-like objects in `args` (with shell=False) and `executable` on Windows [1]. This change was not backported to 3.6 and 3.7."

The latter is because 3.6 and 3.7 only get security patches.  Jani, please verify that this is still an issue with 3.8 and/or 3.9.
