Probably you do something wrong. Check cx_freeze.

cx_Freeze is a set of scripts and modules for freezing Python scripts into executables in much the same way that py2exe and py2app do. Unlike these two tools, cx_Freeze is cross platform and should work on any platform that Python itself works on.

After freezen you can make a single exe installer using e.g.NSIS.

@adobe71 There's a lot of freezing scripts to use, but the one which works with Python 3 at the moment is cx_Freeze, It creates some files beyond the exe, though. You can check bbfreeze, PyInstaller, py2app (on Mac) and some others I just can't remember right now. But I do recommend you to use cx_Freeze.

Thank you.
Will it work with python 2.7 also.
And for linux what should i do?

@adobe71 Have you tried cx_Freeze already? It works pretty well with Py2.7 and Py3.2, they do releases for Windows and CentOS too, I'm not sure if they work with Ubuntu, you should give a try.

@adobe71 By the way, why would you want to compile executables on Ubuntu, are you developing for Windows, sure? You could use a Virtual Machine with Windows XP to do some tests. :)

P.S. If you like the idea, you can try Oracle VM VirtualBox.
