Here is an example ...

""" con_setup2.py

Using cx_freeze with Python33 to package a console
program to an executable file (.exe in Windows OS).

Might want to put a console-wait-line in at the end of your program.

Put this setup program and your console program file into the same
directory.  Change the filename in this setup program and also edit
name, version and description in setup() if you so desire.

A directory 'build' is created with a subdirectory 'exe.win32-3.3'
containing all the files needed for distribution including the
.exe file named after the console program file.

The total distribution has a size of about 4.8 Mb.
this includes the Python33.dll interpreter
and some small pyds and a zip file

I used:
http://cx-freeze.sourceforge.net/
cx_Freeze-4.3.1.win32-py3.3.msi

tested with Python33
"""

from cx_Freeze import setup, Executable
import sys

sys.argv.append("build")  # replaces commandline arg 'build'

# change the filename to your program file
filename = "HelloWorld.py"

setup(
    name = "Hello World",
    version = "1.0",
    description = "console cx_Freeze script",
    executables = [Executable(filename)])
