I am looking for a way to build and make an installer out of Python on a Win x86_64 platform which is not supported yet by the Python team.
Out of curiosity: where did you obtain the operating system, and where will you obtain a C compiler for the platform? To my knowledge, Microsoft has released neither, yet.
My plan is to compile Python for this platform (several developers on the list told me it should be straightforward), and make an installer out of the Python binaries in order to be able to distribute the Python binaries internally.
I downloaded the evaluation copy of Wise Installer System 9, but it complains that the installer file (which I assume is PCBuild\Python20.wse) is corrupted.
Alternatively to that approach, you can use the Python 2.4 code base, and build an MSI file (using Tools/msi); no need for any external tool except for a platform SDK installation, and PythonWin.
