    Install of py2exe fails w/ 0xc0000417 error


    I'm on a HP Elitebook 6930p, running Win 7 Pro x86 SP1. I've installed Python 2.7, I can run my module under IDLE. I tried to install the py2exe-0.6.9.win32-py2.6.exe.

    The install fails with this error logged:

    Faulting application name: py2exe-0.6.9.win32-py2.7.exe, version: 0.0.0.0, time stamp: 0x4840d95e
    Faulting module name: MSVCR90.dll, version: 9.0.30729.4940, time stamp: 0x4ca2ef57
    Exception code: 0xc0000417
    Fault offset: 0x0003024a
    Faulting process id: 0x14c4
    Faulting application start time: 0x01ce623aba94dc67
    Faulting application path: C:\Users\JohnEdAdmin\Documents\My System\Software\Python\py2exe-0.6.9.win32-py2.7.exe
    Faulting module path: C:\Windows\WinSxS\x86_microsoft.vc90.crt_1fc8b3b9a1e18e3b_9.0.30729.4940_none_50916076bcb9a742\MSVCR 90.dll
    Report Id: fc2debfb-ce2d-11e2-9be4-002186e7d405

    Does anyone have an idea what's happening and how I fix it?

    BTW, python-2.6.msi along with py2exe-0.6.9.win32-py2.6.exe installs with no problem.

    Thanks a bunch,
    John

    At one time or another Python switched from
    MSVCR71.dll
    to
    MSVCR90.dll

    It may be as simple as downloading the DLL from MicroSoft.

    Issue solved.


    Thanks for the suggestion Dietrich.

    I found out this doesn't fail all the time. I uninstalled both Python27 and py2exe. Even thought the install hung, there was an entry in the Programs and Features list. Then when I re-installed them both, one after the other, the installs succeeded.

    Go figure..
