Hi guys have a python software that i want to freeze for distribution. The problem is after freezing it with cx_freeze and i run it, it works fine on my development computer but when i sent it to my testing computer (window XP sp3 32bit) it give me this error

Traceback(mostresent call last):
    File "C:Python27\lib\site-packages\cx_Freeze\initscripts\Console.py", line27, in <module?

the setup.py script for the building cx_freeze is

import sys

from cx_Freeze import setup, Executable

includes =['atexit']
packages = ['pyttsx','win32com.server','win32com.client']
base = None
if sys.platform == "win32":
    base = "Win32GUI"

setup(
        name = "timeTracker",
        version = "1.0.0",
        description = "Keep track of your time take control of your life",
        options = {"build_exe" : {"includes" : includes, "packages": packages }},
        executables = [Executable("timeTracker.py", base = base)])

Note i don't have much expereince i

I have done some tesing and got it to work(windows 7 Ultimate)
First my test code.

#sound_test.py
import pyttsx
import time
from datetime import date
from datetime import datetime

engine = pyttsx.init()

date = date.today()
time_now = datetime.now()
date = date.strftime("%A %d %B")
time_now = time_now.strftime('%H:%M:%S')

engine.say('The date is {} and time is now {}'.format(date, time_now))
time.sleep(1)
engine.runAndWait()

Cx_freeze setup.

#cx_run.py
from cx_Freeze import setup,Executable

includes = ["pyttsx", "pyttsx.drivers.sapi5"]
excludes = []
packages = ['win32com.gen_py']

filename = "sound_test.py"
setup(
    name = 'myapp',
    version = '0.1',
    description = 'test pyttsx',
    author = 'no',
    author_email = 'someting@my.org',
    options = {'build_exe': {'excludes':excludes,'packages':packages,'includes':includes}},
    executables = [Executable(filename, base = "Win32GUI", icon = None)])

The hard part to figure out was pyttsx.drivers.sapi5 and win32com.gen_py
To run it sound_test.py and cx_run.py in same folder(freeze).
From command line(cmd)
C:\freeze>python cx_run.py build

thanks bro this problem has been giving me a hard time. Why this problem
can you explain any futher so i can better under it.

by the way i am getting
ImportError: No module named 'win32com.gen_py'
when i run your cx_run.py script

ImportError: No module named 'win32com.gen_py'
when i run your cx_run.py script

Hard to say because it works for me.
Some info.
win32com.gen_py is part of Pywin32 package.
Placement on my hdd is C:\Python27\Lib\site-packages\win32com\gen_py
See if you have this placement.

Make sure that Environment Variables is set to python27.

To path add ;C:\python27\;C:\python27\scripts

well it seems the problem is with the operating software it seems wind XP do not support pyttsx thanks very much i realy applicate your effort

Thanks for the info!!

adding
includes = []
excludes = []
packages = ['win32com.gen_py']

to
setup(...
options = {'build_exe': {'excludes':excludes,'packages':packages,'includes':includes}},
)

it worked fine for me!
