Hi Tony,
If your app runs OK with the regular Python interpreter, it's probably
not a Python bug.  Freezing can be tricky.  It's probably more of a
Pyinstaller issue, but I'd suggest trying a different freezer.  2.7
might make things more difficult ... I'd suggest moving to Python 3 if
possible.  You'll generally have a better freezer selection on Python 3.
 You say exe ... is Windows your target?  For Windows I'd suggest trying

 I've encountered the following exception:"ImportError: DLL load failed:
 Invalid access to memory location."
 when running a short python app that was bundled into an exe with
 Pyinstaller, and when compressed with UPX.
 If I remove UPX from the path, rebundle the app with pyinstaller, the
 assert does not happen. (This makes me a bit suspicious of a UPX bug
 though, but I'm not sure how to proceed)
 I've created an account on bugs.python.org, but did not find any
 to this issue.
 The good news is that it's very repeatable- in my environment, and that
 simply importing
 SimpleXMLRPCServer is enough to cause the assertion (along with UPX
 compression and bundling with Pyinstaller).
 The bad news- I'v enever filed a bug report for Python before, and
 use some help
 at bugs.python.org.
 I could use some help filing the bug, or getting some additional
 information on this issue,
