Linux
I pip x3270
I pip install py3270
I have a sample python file and it opens the terminal window just fine.

Windows
I install wc3270 (make sure it is in my path)
I pip install py3270
The same sample python file that works in Linux does not work on Windows.

Just a snip it.  Am I missing something?

import py3270
import time

print('')
print('START...')
print('')

print('Hi Mike')
from py3270 import Emulator

# use x3270 so you can see what is going on
em = Emulator(visible=True)

print('')
print('...END')
print('')

On Windows I am using this and it seems to be working, hopefully it helps you.

from py3270 import *
import sys, os

host = "my.local"
e = Emulator(visible=True)
e.connect(host)
e.wait_for_field()
print('start')

if e.string_found(7,1, 'string'):
print('Found text')


e.terminate()

Also I'm new to Python and py3270 so if anything here can be corrected let me know.
Thanks
