You probably just accidently downloaded the Python 2.3 version -
check again for the 2.5 version.

Subject: [Py2exe-users] .py2.exe installation error: Python version 2.5
When I attemted to install
.py2.exe version 0.6.8 I got an error that said "Error: Python version 2.3
not installed". I clicked 'OK' and it took me to a screen that had two
fields: 'Python Directory' and 'Installation Directory' neither of
which I could type in. All the buttons except 'Cancel'
were grayed out.
I opened my Python command line to check the version, and
it said I have version 2.5.2. Any suggestions?
