I can guess, nothing more.

You could use Inno Setup (windows guy?) 
<URL:> to install python and then 
automatically all additional libs.

And that is a general idea ... just automate the installing of all libs. 
It may even boil down to just copying the additional files to the 
site-packages directory.

I don't know, but some experimentation should get you long way. It 
shouldn't be very hard.
