Maybe because the console was redirected during sed?

If that were the case, should I not have input up until the execution of the sed command?

Well I don t know, maybe the output it is buffered until a new line as in unix. Does tee and sed comes from the cygwin package? If yes, do you have the script command?

you can try instead

c:\cygwin\bin\script -c "batch.cmd" run4.txt
