For whatever the reason and Windows version, it's still the case that _get_handles() should work around any bad standard handles in the current process. In bpo-25492, I suggested checking os.get_handle_inheritable(). That's too permissive. It should require a valid file handle, checked via _winapi.GetFileType(). For example:

    if stdin is None:
        p2cread = _winapi.GetStdHandle(_winapi.STD_INPUT_HANDLE)
        if p2cread is not None:
            except OSError:
                p2cread = None
