I'm building an exe file on a win 98 machine with
python 3.5. The resulting dist directory does
not contain python98.dll files.
The others are there, my.exe, py, zip, and
I would appreciate it If someone would point me in
the right direction.
Sorry about insulting python by attaching
98 to it,
I've had this win98 #@#% on the brain
for too long.
I tried to simplify things for this
problem by using only one test file. The
test file creates a button. (You can
use any small file.)
That 's the only file in the setup.
the command I run from c:\ is python
setup.py py2exe bdist_wininst
The setup file is written as follows
## import sys
## sys.stdout = open('setuplog.out','w')
## from distutils.core import setup
## import py2exe
## setup (name = "My Test",
version = "1.0",
The results are:
dist directory containing:
My Test 1.0 win32.exe
build directory containing:
bdist win32 (dir)
collect contains 27 pyc files
contains one (_sre.py)
contains one (test.py)
Once I delete python, Mytest exe file when
run produces an error message.
No Python installation found in the registry.
That's where I am now.
Py 4.1 produces error message,
"required dll mscvcr 71 missing".

Quick, slam the time machine into reverse and go back to 2.3.5 :-)
And why not 2.4.1???

No, no, no -- I said REVERSE. You need to see python23.dll, not

Seriously, it might help a lot if you supplied a copy of :
(a) your setup.py file
(b) the command you used to run it
e.g. >python setup.py blah blah blah
(c) a copy of what's produced by "dir dist"
