If you want to spend less time and energy on this, I would recommend engaging in a dialog with those trying to help you. If you had answered some of the questions posed back to you in previous replies, then we might have had the information we needed to help you more.
On the pygtk list you were pointed to this:
Have you built the py2exe/matplotlib/pygtk sample in that FAQ? Does it work for you? Please try it (remembering to copy the lib and etc directories into dist). It works for me. If it fails for you then we have the same example to work on in finding the problem.
One difference I notice between the sample’s setup.py and yours are that you are excluding all those DLLs, do you really want to do that? Assigning to sys.frozen is something I haven’t seen before - I don’t know how that would help although I don’t see the harm it would cause either. Once you have the sample working, I’d recommend copying the sample’s setup.py into the directory with HacGui.py (make a backup of your setup.py first). Then, assuming running HacGui.py directly works, just change the sample’s setup.py console script entry to HacGui.py, build, copy the GTK lib and etc directories into dist and see if that works.
p.s. - Calling py2exe a waste of time and energy is not respectful of the time and energy that Thomas Heller has put in, and I am now putting in, to create, maintain, and support py2exe for the community. py2exe has worked very well for me and many others for years now. I understand the frustration involved in becoming acquainted with a new technology, but keep in mind that it’s much easier for people to spend their own personal free time helping you if they feel respected.
