Redirected I/O does not, in general, work with console functions. (I
haven't tried ReadConsoleInput, but even ReadConsole [which returns
characters] and WriteConsole don't work). You would have to detect
whether the standard input(/output/etc) handle is a console and behave
differently depending on if it is or not.
