How to compile python script to binary executable


Question

I need to convert a Python script to a Windows executable.

I have Python 2.6 installed to python26.

I have created one script and kept it in C:\pythonscript. Inside this folder there are two files

Setup.py and oldlogs.py (this file need coversion)

setup.py code is

from distutils.core import setup
import py2exe

setup(console=['oldlogs.py'])

How can I convert oldlogs.py to an exe file?

I recommend PyInstaller, a simple python script can be converted to an exe with the following commands:

utils/Makespec.py [--onefile] oldlogs.py

which creates a yourprogram.spec file which is a configuration for building the final exe. Next command builds the exe from the configuration file:

utils/Build.py oldlogs.spec
