Hi,
so i am running on py2exe 0.5.4 with python 2.4.1, (on
winxp sp2) and when i freeze a .pyw file, it is exactly
the same as when i freeze a .py file - the console
window still shows up when running the exe.

I would have thought that freezing a .pyw file would
preserve the "no console" nature of the .pyw.

Is this a bug, or is it the way it's supposed to be?
whichever way this is, how would i create an exe that
runs in the background without opening a console
window, as if the script was running through pythonw,
rather than python?

any help appreciated!
