[Forwarding to tutor at python.org.

Jack, next time, please don't send questions directly to me: send them off
to the tutor at python.org address.  There are two benefits to this: it
allows the group to answer your questions, and if also helps others who
may have similar questions.  See:


for more explanation of this.]

Can you or someone give me very specific instructions required to create a
_.EXE     file from a     _.PY     file.

I have spent a lot of time looking through FAQ's at
http://www.python.org/doc/faq/   , having gone through all 7 sections

I have also gone to   http://starship.python.net/crew/theller/py2exe/
and tried to use the general comments there.

I did download and install     *win-py2.4.exe .    This installed
successfully as far as I can see.  There were no error messages and
REMOVEPY2EXE.EXE      was created in my      PYTHON24     folder.

The machine I am running, is running    XP professional, 2002.  It has a
Pentiuum(R) 4, 1.8 Ghz CPU.  The drive has 37 GB free.

I am by no means a computer expert but I am not illiterate either.  I have
used MS Quick Basic for many years.  In the past I have also used APL and
Fortran on various machines over the years.  I just am not familiar enough
with Python and have not been able to find the detailed data I need to do
what I want.  Up to a month ago I had never heard of Python and I badly need
the ability to make programs run as EXE files.

Can you or someone supply the very specific instructions to do this?  I
would also be perfectly willing to arrange with someone to call them at
their convenience and do it over the phone and compensate the person for
their effort and time.

I sincerely and very much appreciate anyone's response and help!  Thank you!
Jack Anema.
