pretty windows installer for py scripts

P: n/a
rbt
Any recommendations on a windows packager/installer that's free? I need
it to allow non-tech users to install some python scripts... you know,
"Click Next"... "Click Next"... "Click Finish"... "You're Done!" and
everything just magically works ;)

Innosetup (http://www.jrsoftware.org/isinfo.php) is quite good, and it's
free (free as in beer, not free as in speech).

Isn't that already available in the distutils module ?

No not really. There's a thing like that for installing library
modules but AFAIK it doesn't make an easy way to install desktop
applications with start menu icons and all that kind of stuff. Inno
Setup does do those things.

I'll take your word on that. If you want to create a fully contained
installer, you should use py2exe and on the samples there's an exemple
in how to integrate InnoSetup.

How do you do this with the disutils module? I'm looking
to make an installer that will install a python library.


start here:

http://docs.python.org/dist/dist.html

if you need more help, grab some libraries from PyPI and look
at their setup files.
