One script that I'm using is a third party code and they would prefere me to use the compiled version of it. Is there a way to compile it?
Please advise.

Those compiled files are compiled into bytecode for the CPython VM. They 
will never run on the .NET framework.

What is wrong with using the '.py' source files?
