If I want to distribute a Python app the end user will need Python..... How can I give them a copy of Python (the Win version) without all of the extra stuff? But I will need Tkinter.
Hiya - well I think the python installer is like 5 mb right? In the installation process it asks if you want sample scripts, tutorial etc. so a person could just check "no". Other then that - the really awesome thing about python, is jython, which essentially lets you run python inside any virtual java machine =)
Very doable actually
There's a wide variety of possibilities on how to distribute your Python app. I'd suggest you look at Gordon McMillan's pages on how to distribute python apps here: http://www.mcmillan-inc.com/install1.html .
Your problem's answer is most probably there somewhere.
