#561 closed defect (fixed)

Failed to import pywin32 under portable python

Reported by: Julien D. Owned by:
Priority: normal Milestone: PyInstaller 2.1
Component: Platform Windows Version: develop
Severity: normal Keywords:


I try to run pyinstaller with portable python under windows. It fails with the message "Error: PyInstaller? for Python2.6+ needs pywin32..."

In order to make pywin32 works with portable python pywintypes must be loaded before any win32 library (bug?

Swapping the two lines "import win32api" and "import pywintypes" in (line 44 and 45 on commit 0837e8a....) fixes the issue.

Can you please explain how to use pyInstaller with Portable Python 2.7.x?
I downloaded latest DEV version of pyInstaller so it should work now.
PortablePython? is "installed".... but I can't install required pyWin32 as it complains about missing registry informations for python! (of course, being it portable! :-) )

I don't know how to make pyinstaller working with portablepython. This ticket is about swapping import lines and that's done. For any issues with portable python create new reports.
