Sorry for the delay in getting back to you. I just started playing
with py2exe. I have an app that uses matplotlib that I would like to
freeze as well, so may as well take the plunge.
I found I could freeze a simple plot with
from distutils.core import setup
data = glob.glob(r'C:\Python23\share\matplotlib\*')
where simple_plot.py is
from matplotlib.matlab import *
I also got a similar warning message at the end like you about "The
following modules appear to be missing" but it appears to be harmless.
A simple_plot.exe was created in my dist dir, as were a number of dlls
and the matplotlib share data dir. I had to set the MATPLOTLIB env
var to point to the share dir, ie
but then it (partly) worked. TkAgg and WXAgg worked out of the box (I
could change the default backend in the rc file). Plain vanilla WX
behaved strangely: The WX frame with navigation bars etc popped up but
no graph. I could click 'save' and save the graph to a jpeg which
viewed correctly. But no image in the wx frame. Hmm. Haven't gotten
GTK* working yet.
Are you using the latest py2exe? Notably, I didn't get the gtk dll
error when I left out the excludes.
