I have been following tutorial at http://www.py2exe.org/index.cgi/Tutorial
Step 5.2.1 runs well, but the app generated on dist directory can't run
on another windows machine which doesn't have Microsoft Visual C++ 2008
Redistributable Package installed. The tutorial explicitly said: " Now,
simply copying the whole dist directory to your users machines should
now allow your application to run, /*even on machines that don't have
their own copy of the C++ runtime.*/".

Here are steps i actually did:
-Install Microsoft Visual C++ 2008 Redistributable Package on my
development machine (Windows XP SP2), since i can get MSVCR90.dll and
manifest just from it.
-Search the apropriate DLL (MSVCR90.dll), and found these files on my
-Copy these files on C:\devel\py2exe_project\runtime

The above names will not work.  You should have this in your runtime folder:


Thank u for the reply. But, sorry I can't get your point. Is the problem just about the file name (x86_Microsoft.VC90.CRT_1fc8b3b9a1e18e3b_9.0.21022.8_x-www_d08d0375.manifest <--> Microsoft.VC90.CRT.manifest) or i bundle the wrong file? Where can i get these files from? Is it ok to get these files from Microsoft Visual C++ 2008 Redistributable Package installation?
I use the one which came with Python 2.6, but I believe strictly legally you might have to use the redist package from MS.
