Just put the needed libraries into the directory of the py2exed application. With mscvr-Versions >=8 you also need to put the .manifest files along.

Please consult with your Microsoft Licence consultant to make sure you are licenced to do that.

best wishes,

Hi!  My need for py2exe isn't for distribution, it's for running my Python app on a remote Windows box that doesn't, and probably will not, have Python.  It has no Windows directory (that I’m able/allowed to see), and so I don’t know how I would go about installing the MSVC runtime dll, etc., thereon.  Is there some way to tell, e.g., via the setup.py file, my app that it should look on my local drive (i.e., over the network) for the libraries it requires?  Thanks!
