Serious Sqlite command line Problems after Windows 10 update
> Is the first shell a powershell

If it is, it explains some of what's being reported here, since [PowerShell lacks redirect-in-from][0], a.k.a. the `<` operation. You'd need to use [Larry's pipe-thru alternative][1] to achieve the OP's desired end with PowerShell.

I don't see that this explains the secondary command window, though.
