Hi there,

I had the same problem while trying to embed my icon. In the end I could not archive it with py2exe (followed the same track as you). In the end I used resurce hacker (http://www.angusj.com/resourcehacker/) to change the icon.

As a related note, you may see your icon embedded on the exe while editing, but Windows won't display it for some reason.

Could someone help me with embed icon in .exe with py2exe?
I used py2exe to build my software using PySide and Reportlab.  The deployed software has icon visible under windows xp, but NOT visible in Windows 7.
I have refered to the following links, but have not found a solution. I also put my setup.py file below. Thanks.


# Used successfully in Python2.5 with matplotlib 0.91.2 and PyQt4 (and Qt 4.3.3)
from distutils.core import setup

#import mechanize

# We need to import the glob module to search for all files.
import glob

# We need to exclude matplotlib backends not being used by this executable.  You may find
# that you need different excludes to create a working executable with your chosen backend.
# We also need to include include various numerix libraries that the other functions call.
