In addition to Gerhard's answer: I've successfully used PowerArchiver
(and I'm sure there are a dozen other similar possibilities) to package
up a py2exe'd program plus all the DLLs into a single .EXE which is
really just a self-extracting-and-executing ZIP file. You run it, it
unpacks itself to a temporary directory, runs the main program, and
then cleans up everything (or not, optionally) when it's done.
