This may or may not solve this particular problem, but one of the gotchas I ran into when making an .exe in Windows 7 was the POWRPROF.dll. I needed to add that dll to the "dll_excludes" list:

"dll_excludes": [ ..., "POWRPROF.dll", ... ]

Excluding that .dll has no effect on Windows XP builds, so you can use the same setup.py for both operating systems.

Hello,

I'm developing a wxPython application. I've produced an executable of it on an XP VM. It works well in there. But when I move it to a Win 7 VM, it fails in a few separate points in the program.

In one of these points, (Trying to load a simulation from file,) it just exits the program with no message. In another point, (Creating a new simulation,) it gives a Windows error dialog saying the program must be closed, with these details:

If you need any more details, let me know.

Does anyone have a clue what to do here?

(Please `cc` any replies to me personally.)

Thanks,

Thanks for the advice David. I tried it now but it didn't help.

Ram.
