This is an output problem, which is unrelated to the IDLE input error
that you initially reported. But IDLE isn't (at least shouldn't be)
used for deployed applications. It's a development environment.

Generally if you're using Qt then you're not creating a console
application that prints to stdout, but instead the program outputs
text to a Qt widget such as a QTextEdit. That said, if you need to print
Unicode text to the Windows console, for whatever reason (maybe
debugging), then pip install and enable the win_unicode_console
