You might find an easier time of it to embed your Python in Delphi, or,
even better, write a Python extension with Delphi:

Anyone have any ideas about how to package one of these pythondelphi
apps to be easy to deploy and be convenient to the end user? I'm
guessing that since python isn't on top, McMillan's installer and
py2exe won't handle it.


You could write a small, fake module importing the stuff that the
library needs. If you then run py2exe with the -k (--keep-temp) option,
it doesn't delete its own build tree. You will find there a xxx.zip
file, containing all the modules needed (plus a few scripts which you
can ignore). If you use Python 2.3, just add the zip-file's name to
sys.path, and you are done.

Beats me that people keep trying to achieve (necessarily idiomatic)
machine translation of human languages, while the (clearly easier)
problem of idiomatically translating between computer languages
looks too hard for serious attention.

That's what I need too, thanks for posting this info.

I have an DLL that embeds and extends Python23.dll, but I want to package up
all the "standard python .py" as .pyo files in a zip and I'm looking for an
easy way to resolve imports. This looks like it will get me most of the way
there!
