Hi Alain,
Thank you for your product information. But, with my problem
installation is okay.
The first two steps:
"from distutils.core import setup
 import py2exe"
but as I am giving
"setup(console=['file.py'])"

the setup file is not being generated. It is giving some error
messages.
Any suggestions?
Best Regards,
Subhabrata.
