It imported setup fine from the IDLE cmd prompt. Win Cmd prompt is fine 
to operate it. Just curious about IDLE. I looked in setup.py and don't 
see what the complaint is. It sure thinks py2exe is not available.

I'm now in IDLE's path browser. I see pkgs in ...\lib\site-packages like 
dateutil, numdisplay, numpy, but no py2exe. Doesn't seem right, since I 
can import it. I'm pretty sure that during the install that py2exe was 
headed to site
