I used Inno Setup which creates an uninstaller, however I am not
seeing it in my Windows Add/Remove. Odd. However, you can uninstall it
from the Start menu entry and it works.

Currently, I am running the application from source in Linux. But I
plan to try cx_freeze or similar sooner or later. I haven't had need
to distribute it since my apps are for internal use so far.
