Hi all, I can convert my .py or .pyw files into EXE no problem. The thing is they only display a console for about a tenth of a second if they have a GUI made with tkinter. If it is a console only program then the exe works fine. Any help? I use cx_freeze. I'm also using python 3.1

Here is the code I wish to convert, if someone can get it to work then I would be grateful if the can tell me how.

from tkinter import * 

print ('Ignore the console, it is here only for bug reports.') 

root = Tk() 

root.geometry("300x150+300+300") 


pilotpln= 0 
enempln = 0 


class AppUI(Frame): 

    def __init__(self, master=None):
        Frame.__init__(self, master, relief=SUNKEN, bd=2)

        self.menubar = Menu(self) 

        menu = Menu(self.menubar, tearoff=0) 
        self.menubar.add_cascade(label="File", menu=menu) 
        menu.add_command(label="Save", command=writefile) 
        menu.add_command(label="Exit", command=root.quit)

        try:
            self.master.config(menu=self.menubar)
        except AttributeError:
            
            self.master.tk.call(master, "config", "-menu", self.menubar)


def setnumpilot(event): 
    global pilotpln
    if var.get() == 'MOSQ':
        pilotpln = 57
    elif var.get() == 'P-38J':
        pilotpln = 82
    elif var.get() == '109F-4':
        pilotpln = 13


def setnumenem(event):
    global enempln
    if var2.get() == 'MOSQ':
        enempln = 57
    elif var2.get() == 'P-38J':
        enempln = 82
    elif var2.get() == '109F-4':
        enempln = 13
        
name = pilotpln 


#str0 = filename1 I only have the strs that equal pilot/enempln here for my reading, they don't have to be.

Thank you.

I think that is it, I will convert my code to 2.6 when I get home.
