Not at all. There is no exe. The py source program is all that goes out. 
It is expected that the recipients have the same versions of modules, 
numpy, etc, and IDLE. All under Windows. There's not a single person (of 
about 50) that gets person who is likely to have changed the Python 
environment. None of them know Python. When the sponsor decides to 
change the app we all use, then we update Python and modules as 
required. User's execute the programs with IDLE, or a double click of 
the py file.
