I need a tutorial on how to turn a .py script into an .exe file using py2exe. Ive tryed windows xp tutorials but i cant get it to work. I have everyhting set up, my setup.py is good and i have my hello.py ready. When i type " start setup.py py2exe" in my DOS window it says "Import Error: No module named py2exe. I think it might be because im running vista. Help please. (Oh and i am not an advanced programmer so try to keep it simple.)
Thx in advanced guys :)

Thx for the tut. I followed it twice and still got the same error(When i type " start setup.py py2exe" in my DOS window it says "Import Error: No module named py2exe.).
I think i might not have py2exe insatlled properly, is there a tutorial to install it? Or a way to check if it is installed?

Woot! Third times a charm!

The error was...

I think it might be because i didnt install my py2exe properly, how do you install?(There is no installer in derectory)

Well i assumed that i had to run setup.py thats in py2exe folder to install it... BUT, it get this error

error: Python was built with visual studio 2003;
visual studio was not found on your computer. If you have cygwin installed compile with ming32, by passing "c- ming32" to setup.py.

i shortend it a bit but has all important things

Anyway i went out to download visual studio...I downloaded VS 2005 and tryed again! Same error.
Do i need the 2003 version?

Man this is so weird and messed up need help plz guys.
(Sry for triple post :))

Try installing the program again using the original installation media or contact you system admin or software vendor for support.
