Cross platform distribution of standalone executable

P: n/a
Hi,

One of my clients does not want the Python VM installed on his
production machine (because it is not a supported IT language) so the
only way I can program in Python and release the application to him is
to make a standalone executable and deploy it. The last time I looked
at something like this, Macmillan installer was a good contender but
now that website seems to be AWOL.

Are there any alternate installers out there? Googling didn't bring up
any other maintained installer.

This installer should be able to build on Windows, Linux and AIX.

Thanks,

Mahesh
