Problems running python script by windows task scheduler that does pscp

I'm having a similar issue. In testing I found that any type of call with subprocess stops the python script when run in task scheduler but works fine when run on the command line.

import subprocess

test = subprocess.check_output(["dir"], shell=True)
print('First call finished')

When run on command line this outputs:

First call finished

When run from task scheduler the output is:


In order to get the output from task scheduler I run the python script from a batch file as follows:

python test.py >> log.txt

I run the script through the batch file both on command line and through task scheduler.
