I just created a simple tasks file on Windows:

from invoke import task, run
@task
def foo():
    print("Hello, world!")
    run("echo Hi")

When I try to run it (invoke 0.12.0, Python 3.5.0 64-bit) on Windows 7, I get the following error:

>inv foo
Hello, world!
Hi

OSError: [WinError 10093] Either the application has not called WSAStartup, or WSAStartup failed

Note that the task output appears fine, so it's not clear what's going on here. Is it possible that invoke is trying to use select.select on sys.stdin? That's not allowed on Windows, you can only use select on sockets...

Yes, confirmed. Runner.handle_stdin sets use_select when isatty(input_) is true. That's what triggers trying to use select on a non-socket stream. But simply using False for use_select breaks, as the program hangs waiting for input, and then fails in write_stdin.

PR #304 seems to fix this (based on a relatively straightforward test). At least for simple cases, run() is no longer totally broken on Windows.

Note that I'd view this as a critical fix - with this bug, invoke 0.12.0 is essentially unusable on Windows.

Should be fixed as per discussions in #289 and #304.
