I might not understand what you're looking for.  I thought you wanted a
single .exe to give your users.  Inno Setup packages up such a thing for
you, making it very convenient for them.  I think I used it in
conjunction with py2exe, another Windows packaging tool that might or
might not still be in use.  Do you mean it's not ok for the setup tool
to install files?  Hmm.  It might still be possible with py2exe.

On the UI issue, I've always used tkinter and been satisfied with it,
though the gui's I've done haven't been terribly fancy.  tkinter is
pretty easy to use and relatively portable, and included with python
distros, so that made it my default choice.
