found the answer myself:

"""
Recent Python versions contain support for unicode, which requires the 
encodings package to be included in the exe-file. This is not included 
by default, and it would be very difficult for py2exe to find that this 
is needed.
So if your exe-file reports errors like LookupError: no codec search 
functions registered: can't find encoding or LookupError: unknown 
encoding, you should advise py2exe to include this package with the 
'--packages encodings' command line option.
