Executable Python on Windows

We provide solutions to our clients in a variety of forms.  Customized software solutions is just one of them and knowing more than one programming language makes it possible to choose an effective and efficient platform accordingly.

Python is a relatively simple yet powerful language. I was concerned that anyone wanting to use programs written in Python would also have to install Python on their system. After spending a little time researching Python on the internet, I was pleased to learn that Python programs can be converted into executable files – at least on Windows.

You can visit the py2exe.org website for more information including a tutorial and links to download the software required for your version of Python. To quote the first line of the py2exe.org Tutorial page:

py2exe turns Python programs into packages that can be run on other Windows computers without needing to install Python on those computers.

The py2exe installation wizard checks the version of Python installed on your machine. Be sure to select the py2exe version that matches the version of Python installed on your system.  The wizard will not install py2exe otherwise. I’m running Python version 2.7.6 on my Surface Pro 2 and successfully installed py2exe from Source Forge – py2exe for py 2.7

If programming is of interest to you, check out Python for yourself. Like so much on the web today, you can get everything you need to get started free of charge.  All you need is a computer, time, and a little determination.
