If the mk_logwatch agent plugin was used no Agent Output was created and the HW-/SW Inventory would fail aswell. Therefore the agent plugin could not be used for Windows.

The reasons for that were:

In Python 3 sys.stdout returns \r\n as linebreak for Windows. Checkmk can't handle this therefore we removed it by replacing the default sys.stdout. The win32api module could not be imported because pywin32 was not installed. Now pywin32 is installed by default.
