Did you figure this out? I wasn't sure of the order of your messages.
I think you want to access http://localhost/wkcgi.exe/ (not wkcgi.cgi).
Someone else who uses Windows will be able to explain better.

My recommendation: forget about using either py2exe or Installer. For best
performance with IIS, use wkcgi.exe. If you really want to use the Python
cgi adapter, just use PythonLauncher:
http://www.cybercode.dk/tw/PythonLauncher.html but be aware that it'll be a
lot slower than wkcgi.exe.
