    if you just want to make EXEs, try py2exe.

    I would not bother with it. It was an experimental project that has now been abandoned. From the readme file:

    The speed of the current system is so low as to render the current implementation useless for anything beyond demonstration purposes. This speed problem applies to both the compiler itself, and the code generated by the compiler. Given that part of the appeal of Python programming is a quick edit-compile-run cycle, the speed issues severely limit the utility of Python on this platform. Some of the blame for this slow performance lies in the domain of .NET internals and Reflection::Emit, but some of it is due to the simple implementation of the Python for .NET compiler.
    If you just want to create exes to run under Windows then take a look at py2exe. If you want to create Python programs that run under .NET then try IronPython. It is in early alpha, but looks more promising than the link you posted. Alternatively there is Python for .NET, which enables standard C-Python to make calls to .NET libraries.
