Packaging Python as a Microsoft Installer Package (MSI)

Using this library, Python can be packaged as a MS-Windows
MSI file. To generate an installer package, you need
a build tree. By default, the build tree root directory
is assumed to be in "../..". This location can be changed
by adding a file config.py; see the beginning of msi.py
for additional customization options.

The packaging process assumes that binaries have been 
generated according to the instructions in PCBuild/README.txt,
and that you have either Visual Studio or the Platform SDK
installed. In addition, you need the Python COM extensions,
either from PythonWin, or from ActivePython.

To invoke the script, open a cmd.exe window which has 
cabarc.exe in its PATH (e.g. "Visual Studio .NET 2003
Command Prompt"). Then invoke

<path-to-python.exe> msi.py

If everything succeeds, pythonX.Y.Z.msi is generated
in the current directory.

Tip: Filter by directory path e.g. /media app.js to search for public/media/app.js.
Tip: Use camelCasing e.g. ProjME to search for ProjectModifiedEvent.java.
Tip: Filter by extension type e.g. /repo .js to search for all .js files in the /repo directory.
Tip: Separate your search with spaces e.g. /ssh pom.xml to search for src/ssh/pom.xml.
Tip: Use ↑ and ↓ arrow keys to navigate and return to view the file.
Tip: You can also navigate files with Ctrl+j (next) and Ctrl+k (previous) and view the file with Ctrl+o.
Tip: You can also navigate files with Alt+j (next) and Alt+k (previous) and view the file with Alt+o.
