[IronPython] EXE problem

For the exes to run, they require the IronPython runtime (IronPython.dll
and IronMath.dll). Since we do not install those into the Global
Assembly Cache, running the stand-alone exe in the directory that
doesn't contain Iron*.dll will fail with the message you are seeing.

At this time, generating the exes is more a by-product of IronPython
execution rather than full-blown compilation into independent
executables. Doing the latter, though, is on our to-do list. It is still
a question whether we will get to it before 1.0 release or not.

I hope this answers your question

	This may be an elementary problem. I tried searching the list
and did not find an answer. When I try creating exe files from any
directory other than /bin, i get this error. How do I create exe files
