error on windows with commands.getstatusoutput

My application is trying to start twistd in a cross-platform way.

Unfortunately, it works fine on my linux system, but I do not
have windows, and I am trying to debug this remotely on a
system I never use (

Anyhow, here is the error I am getting:

cmd = '%s -y %s -l %s' % (conf.twistd, conf.tztac, conf.twistdlog)
status, output = commands.getstatusoutput(cmd)

Error code: 1
Command: C:/Python25/Scripts/twistd.bat -y tzmud.tac -l var/log/twistd.log
'{' is not recognized as an internal or external command,
operable program or batch file.

Apparently, the Command works fine from the command line.


Can I run a .bat file on windows with getstatusoutput?

Anyone recognize this kind of error?

Thanks for any assistance.
