There are a couple of functions from `pathutils
<http://www.voidspace.org.uk/python/pathutils.html>`_ that do this
(originally supplied by Thomas Heller I believe) :
"""Return ``True`` if we're running from a frozen program."""
# new py2exe
hasattr(sys, "frozen") or
"""Return the script directory - whether we're frozen or not."""
just call ``get_main_dir()`` and it works consistently with py2exe'd
scripts and normal scripts.
All the best,
