I have installed TBB, but I need use the command line tor. TBB is working, and some project use python to start tor is also working(such as this https://github.com/realgam3/pymultitor)

Find the location,

tor -h, show nothing:

parameter found from https://www.torproject.org/docs/tor-manual.html.en.

enter image description here

If I just type tor, can see it run in backgroud(in task manager). But I want to see the detail.


This is a bug related to Windows' cmd.exe, the Tor processes doesn't print output as expected.

One way around print out the resulting commands values is to pipe (|) it into the more command e.g.

tor.exe -h | more
  • will this ever be fixed?
