Missed cxfreeze-postinstall script in source distribution

Issue #56 new
Former user created an issue

Can't create wheel package for cxfreeze from sources.

c:\Python32\Scripts\pip.exe wheel --wheel-dir dist\wheelhouse cx_freeze

error: file '~\build\cx-freeze\cxfreeze-postinstall' does not exist.

Probably need to add this script into file: MANIFEST

    This is because that script is not needed on Linux and that is where I built the source distribution! I will see if this script is needed and if so, make sure it is included in the next release.

    All users who have MSVC and want to install cx_Freeze with pip will fail to install it. Can you please fix this? Thanks!

    Alright folks! In the interest of convenience, I have created the cx_Freeze-win package. It is exactly the same as the cx_Freeze package, except it will install on windows.

    I just checked and when I run python setup.py sdist the file cxfreeze-postinstall is included. So the next release will have this.


    When I first tried to install cx_Freeze using pip instruction, it said I needed MS Visual C++ 14. I downloaded the latest Visual C++ and then tried pip install cx_Freeze... and still see this error.

    Here's a screenshot of the error: https://ibb.co/iLRSnT
