You can redirect the stderr to the stdout on Windows (at least on WinXP, haven't tried it on other versions):

C:\Program Files\Pure Data\bin>pd>output.txt 2>&1

This will write the output of pd (both stdout and stderr) to the file 'output.txt'.

For more info on command redirection check:

Hope it helps,
