Can one turn a python file into a standalone executable for windows via a gui program?
I have already tried py2exe
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)])
