This Werk fixes the following bug:

cmk-update-agent.exe console output won't work on Windows if stdout/stderr gets redirected to file. Instead, a Traceback like this will be displayed for every output:

 Traceback (most recent call last): File "logging\", line 861, in emit File "logging\", line 734, in format File "", line 1713, in format TypeError: encode() argument 1 must be string, not None Logged from file, line 1009 
The normal program flow is not affected by this bug, also normal logging takes place as expected, as can be seen at log/cmk-update-agent.log To the list of all Werks
