Running Console (just a wrapper for CMD.exe right?), I am not able to run some of my scripts. Is there a way around this? I would rather use Console if possible, because it's nicer.

here is an example -k 2 > z2test

This works as intended on plain CMD.exe Using Console, I get the following error, and z2test is an empty file

close failed in file object destructor:
sys.excepthook is missing
lost sys.stderr

Is the path reported while in CMD the same path reported while in Console? – Ƭᴇcʜιᴇ007 Oct 22 '13 at 19:38
Python was just installed? Try to logoff/logon. – Maximus Oct 22 '13 at 23:37

It looks like this is a known bug and as yet there is no answer, although superuser users may prove otherwise. I think the Console bug tracker might be a good place to watch for progress.

What did you google to find this? Thanks :) – SwimBikeRun Oct 23 '13 at 17:23
Projects hosted on Sourceforge have a bug tracker by default, so that was the first place I looked! – sahmeepee Oct 23 '13 at 22:38
