I don't know Py2exe but if it does what I think it does
(building one single exe from your application), you
have two choices:

1) start the Name Server automatically in a separate
    process or tread, just as the script does.
2) don't use Pyro's name server. Use PYROLOC: uri's,
    or use the Pyro URI strings from the objects directly.
