oh mao... ok, does window still have a C:\TEMP ?  There's got to
be some directory you can write to... if not, please create such a
directory.  I recommend C:\TEMP so that you don't need to type a

Then, please try doing
  dir > C:\TEMP\log.txt
on the command-line.  If that doesn't work, then I rely on you to
figure out how to do this in windows.  Maybe it can't have any
space between the > and C: or something weird like that, or maybe
you need to do something special to enable write permission to
C:\TEMP, or whatever.

Once you can run that command yourself, then please copy the exact
command into the relevant part of or if you're using that one.

Longer-term, we can use python's tempfile module to get us a
writeable file -- at the moment I just want to get a working "go
run this command and give us the output" in our version of python
in mingw GUB.
