PythonCard and Py2Exe

I've been banging my head against this problem for a week. It's time
to ask for help, because I'm obviously not going to solve this by trial
and error. I'm trying to create a standalone version (.exe) of
PythonCard's Custdb sample using Py2Exe version 0.5.0. Everytime I
attempt to compile the program, I get an error during compilation. I
need to formulate the correct setup file. Here's the one I began with:
from distutils.core import setup
from PythonCard import dialog, model
import PythonCard
import py2exe

setup( name = "custdb",
console = ["custdb.py"],
data_files = [ (".", ["custdb.ini ", "custdb.rsrc.py ",
"customerdata.c sv"]) ]
)

Every variation of this format failed. Does anyone have any ideas of
how to re-write this Setup file?

For this setup file, the executable packs, but when I attempt to run
the program, the screen flashes, " cannot import name radiogroup ".
I've attempted adding "import radiogroup", "from Pythoncard import
radiogroup" and "from Pythoncard.comp nents import radiogroup" to the
setup file, and that doesn't help. It simply terminates with no error.
I've tried removing all references to radiogroup from the script's
resource file, but that defeats the purpose, as the list box is central
to the script's use.

My computer runs the script fine, so the radiogroup module must be
there. I must just have the imports written wrong.

You should move these 'import ...' statements to your *script* so that
py2exe doesn find them, not to the setup script.

Thomas


Removing import statements only returns this error message before the
package compiles:

= "custdb",
'setup' is not defined
No files are returned.

Please use "cut and paste" to copy the *actual* error into your
message, rather than retyping (and removing critical information).

Also, if the setup.py script is not too large (less than about
20 lines) post it as well.

The Error:

(Most recent call last):
C:\Documents and Settings\Gatewa y User\ Desktop\custdb\ setup.py", line
1,

name = "custdb",
'setup' is not defined
There may be a single word infront of 'setup' on the fourth line, it
scramble on my screen because I have to use a screen capture to read
the error (it pops up for just a second before the window shuts down.
Here's the full setup.py script I ran to get the error:

from distutils.core import setup
import py2exe

setup( name = "custdb",
console = ["custdb.py"],
data_files = [ (".", ["custdb.ini ", "custdb.de.rsrc .py"
"custdb.rsrc.py ", "customerdata.c sv"]) ]
)

*note: "data_files " is all one line in my Python IDLE

That's because you're not running it from a command prompt.
Please open a command prompt (Start Menu, select "Run",
type "cmd.exe" and ENTER, then type the following line
to get to the folder with the script:

cd "c:\documen ts and settings\gatewa y user\desktop\cu stdb"

(If that doesn't work, perhaps there is really a space in
front of "desktop" as you show above...)

Once you're there, you should be able to run the script
directly just by typing its name plus the arguments
required: "setup.py py2exe" (without the quotes). If
you can get that far, you should have the full error
message in a form you can directly cut and paste. If
it adds nothing over what you show above, however, then
I'm at a loss because I can't see how your script could
possibly have generated that error...
Here's the full setup.py script I ran to get the error:

from distutils.core import setup
import py2exe

setup( name = "custdb",
console = ["custdb.py"],
data_files = [ (".", ["custdb.ini ", "custdb.de.rsrc .py"
"custdb.rsrc.py ", "customerdata.c sv"]) ]


This makes no sense to me, given the error message. The error
reports that it fails on "line 1", yet line 1 in the above
is the import statement, and doesn't have name = "custdb" on
it as the error reports.

I am using the command prompt. What I realized after reading your
entry, Peter, is that if I use "setup.py py2exe" instead of "start
setup.py py2exe" I can see the error in the same window without it
closing.

I went into the script and double spaced everything in case Notebook
smashed the lines together while I was tweaking the code. After that,
the code resumed packing. Now, however, it seems I'm back where I
started. Running the .Exe returned this error:
Traceback (most recent call last):

File "PythonCard\res ource.pyc", line 30, in loadComponentMo dule
ImportError: cannot import module 'radiogroup
Cannot import module 'radiogroup' was the initial problem I was having.
This is just a more detailed error message.

Thanks, Tony, we long term newbies need to stick together ;-)) I just updated a few PythonCard versions of three of the modules from askMerlin, and posted them in a link right below the askMerlin100.py command line program.

You will have to install wxPython and PythonCard in order to use these, so I provide links for that. I must say,...

Hi to all folks here, i downloaded and "playing" with PythonCard and i just want to share my thoughts so maybe we can discuss a little about it. I was used to wxGlade before and i think PythonCard is even better.

I also like that it does not force you to use...

I'm curious to know what others think of these two frameworks for building wxPython apps. PythonCard has been around longer, but its development seems to have slowed. The last release, 0.8.2, has been out for quite awhile now. Dabo is newer and seems to have gathered a lot of buzz. Anyone try both? What's your preference and why? Is one more robust than the other?
