Vincent, I'm not sure I completely understand your question but this
link may be the answer nonetheless:
And here is how I make sure I'm always using the right directory in my scripts:
Put this code at the top:
Then I use curdir to build all of the paths in my app:
For example let's get a list of files in a folder:
list of resumes
Below is optional but helps me keep a python module in the exe's main
directory and be able to edit it. Otherwise the main module reads
from py2exe's lib file which seems harder to change:
sys.path.insert(0,curdir) #read usersettings.py from main dir, not library
Let me know if that helps (I may be answering the question I had
yesterday and not yours though ;-)
