Hi Lukas,

das Tutorial ist wirklich gut und verständlich gemacht! Danke dir!

Bei mir gibt es nur das Problem, dass die Datei nichts macht! Wenn ich sie ausfürhen möchte, öffnet sich ein Fenster, das mich fragt, mit welchem Programm ich öffnen will...

Klappt nicht :(

14. anonymous Tue, 28 Aug 2007 17:23

nice tutorial, danke Lucas.

13. anonymous Wed, 23 May 2007 11:34


Could you please show how to use pyInstaller on Linux?

Thank you

It's great that you got it working! Thanks for sharing your knowledge!

It's me, the anonymous guy that posted about Tkinter.

I got it working with the flags passed to -w -F -K -X

Which packs the scripts in a single .EXE file, compressed with UPX and with the Tkinter inside it.

And it works fine!

A typical executable here is 2,40MB with the required python interpreter and libraries inside it. Pretty fair for a dynamic and powerfull language as Python!

PyInstaller is nice tool!

Thanks for showing it for us!

thanks for the tutorial !

for 2 reasons

1) learning python

2) learning german

thanks again and i hope you could add a video

with gui example !

Path und ATI?! Das ist mir komplett neu. Es kann sein, dass da was mit ATI drin steht, man kann da aber auch mehrere Sachen reinstellen (am besten noch mal genau im Video schauen). Anstonsten musst du jedes mal den vollen Pfad zu PyInstaller angeben...

8. anonymous Tue, 24 Apr 2007 11:27

Wollte noch sagen, dass ich es klasse finde, das du das in einem Video erklärt hast! :)

7. anonymous Tue, 24 Apr 2007 11:24


Ist es wichtig für den Pyinstaller, dass man unter Systemsteuerung die Umgebungsvariable ändert?

Bei mir gibt es das nämlich nicht wirklich...

Der Wert der Variable "Path" ist aber was mit ATI!?

No, sorry. You might want to check this out though:

There might be further information available there.

I've tried pyInstaller and it works with simple "hello world" program.

But it doesn't work when I try to use it with Tkinter program.

Any idea?



I haven't really used py2exe at all - so I guess you'll have to do some research on the web.

As for the smaller distribution: I've heard people say that pyinstaller creates smaller files (but that's just what I *heard*).

3. anonymous Sun, 15 Apr 2007 11:14


How pyInstaller is different from py2exe?

Could you compare them please?

Which creates smaller distribution?

Hi Freddy,

thanks for the positive feedback, it is really appreciated!


Very good video!

I'm still learning Deutsch, but the explanation was really nice!

PyInstaller is a very usefull tool. Thank you for showing how to use it.

Keep the good job.


Showmedo is a peer-produced video-tutorials and screencasts site for free and open-source software (FOSS)- with the exception of some club videos, the large majority are free to watch and download.

Educating the Open-source Community With Showmedo

Although as important as the software it supports, education and documentation are relatively neglected in the Open-source world. Coders love to code, and explaining how best to use or improve the software tends to be deferred or even sidelined.

At Showmedo we believe the community can play a vital role here and also say thanks for the tools and software that make our lives easier. If you have a piece of software you love or a programming langugage you are enthusiastic about, why not make a screencast showing others how to use it? All the stuff you wish you'd been told, the tips, tricks, insights that would have saved you time and frustration.

Screencasting is easier than you think, and we're happy to help you. You can emailus for advice or just use some of the how-to screencasts on the site. This screencasting learning-pathis a good place to start.

Kudos and Thanks for Lucas
