running pkg_resources from a compiled py2exe program

I'm trying to make an exe that uses pkg_resources.

Every time I try to run the compiled version it always fails complaining
that it is missing pkg_resources.

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "", line 6, in <module>
    import MainWindow
  File "MainWindow.pyc", line 16, in <module>
  File "Packaging.pyc", line 9, in <module>
ImportError: No module named pkg_resources

This only happens in the .exe version. It runs fine without compilation.

Any ideas?
