You sure are short on specifics: I guess you're talking about
my Installer. I also guess you're talking about the default
exclude of win32api and PyWinTypes15.dll. Simply remove
the offending excludes line from the config and run Builder on
it, (or remove it from the templates in Simple, Standalone and
or Freeze, whichever you're using).
They are excluded because most people don't specifically use
them, but the framework uses the os module, which will
include these. But os uses them only for the abspath function,
and has a reasonable fallback if they're not installed. So for
most users they would be excess baggage that they didn't
