[Distutils] Windows installer, setuptools and distritools

I have 2 questions about using setuptools for a windows installer:
1. I want to make a executable-windows-installer with setuptools
in setup.py I place a dependency: install_requires =
["TurboGears >= 1.0.1",],
installation is not zip-safe: zip_safe=False,
The target-machine (where I do the install) has easy_install already
Am I right that when I install this executable-windows-installer the
dependency is not automatically installed?
Or is there a way to do this with setuptools that I have overlooked?
2. in distritools it is possible to use a postinstallation script
(which I want to use shortcuts in menu's).
This is not possible in setuptools?
( I just am not sure about this when reading the documentation.
Eggs & setuptols are great; most user are used to windows installers,
shortcuts in the menu etc.)
best regards, Henk-Jan
