Hello sir,

Please find the attached batch file out put, which i ran for the

The below commands are my windows batch file content

doskey clear=cls ls=dir
virtualenv --no-site-packages --clear .
type setup.py
Scripts\python.exe setup.py install -vvv
cd Scripts
ls -l

As per my setup.py after the installation console entry_points should
list/install in prefix\scripts, where as it is not installing the entry
points in a subdirectory called "Scripts" alongside the python executable.

But the same scenario is working fine in Linux platform all the entry_points
are listing\installing in prefix/bin subdirectory.
