I am using Python 2.7.8.

I installed the following: py2exe-0.6.9.win32-py2.7.exe and pywinusb-0.3.3

I have a script that I am trying to run. When I do I get the following error:

C:\Python27\MyScripts\VMS\Python_Firmware_Upgrader-4_00_02\Python_Firmware_Upgrader\python-msp430-tools\win32>python ./setup-combined-tools

A portion of my setup script is shown below:

I found the following link:


Basically it says => py2exe does not currently (as of 0.6.5) work out of the box if some of your program's dependencies are in .egg form

When I ran the pywinusb setup.py as follows

python setup.py install_lib

I got the uncompressed folder => C:\Python27\Lib\site-packages\pywinusb
