Oh, I did not realize this.

Of course, if you could figure everything on your on, this will be excellent.
The more pragmatic course of action would be:
   - since you know Python tests very well, you can immediately point out to
     any issues
   - I try to fix all issues that I can without access to Windows
   - You continue from there to fix the remaining problems.

I've just comitted a change that tries to set the 'interpreter' for NT.
