Without a better explaination of what went wrong, there is not much we 
can suggest.

If your using Gordon's Installer package, here's some suggestions:

1) Make sure your using the latest version (v4a4 for Windows, not sure 
on the linux version).  If not, run don't walk to  
http://www.mcmillan-inc.com/installer_dnld.html  and download the latest.

2) If your Making a Tkinter based application, did you run SETUPTK from 
the installer directory (or is it installer\projects\buildtk?).  This 
only needs to be run once....

3) If your making a Tkinter based application, did you pass the -tk flag 
on the freeze/standalone/simple command line?

4) If your making a win32 app, did you pass the -win32 flag on the 
freeze/standalone/simple command line?

5) Please capture the error message, and post it.

Please repeat after me:

   The quality of the technical support that we can give is directly in 
proporation to the quality of the information that you give us.
