[python-win32] wexpect and running without a console

Seems reasonable to me, I don't believe there is an error in my code since it works perfectly running from console and this error occurs instantly when NOT running from console. There is no way when accessing Wexpect to instruct it that Python is running without a console, and there should be no need to either (IMHO). Wexpect doesn't seem to have that much of a development going on, so I guess it's up to me to fix it (or run it on Linux/cygwin and use Pexpect instead).
Thanks for the help!

Do I need to create different stdin and stdout or spawn the child process in any other way from wexpect? Are there any other ways of solving this problem?
The error is because there is no console, but wexpect is attempting to
use one. The solution is to fix the code that assumes a console always
exists - it doesn't. I think you need to talk to the wexpect guys and
see if either (a) you are misusing wexpect or (b) it is a bug in wexpect.
