Which windows?  It works for me on both 2k and XP (though I'm not
running ds9):
>>> os.popen3('"C:\\Program Files\\WinImage\\winimage.exe"')
(<open file '"C:\Program Files\WinImage\winimage.exe"', mode 'w' at 0x007E7AE0>,
 <open file '"C:\Program Files\WinImage\winimage.exe"', mode 'r' at 0x007EC2E0>,
 <open file '"C:\Program Files\WinImage\winimage.exe"', mode 'r' at 0x007EC360>)
