i am going to use py2exe after i have completed my program. The problem is, i use lots of different packages such as wxpython, pyro etc etc. each of these packages i have downloaded and installed on my pc. So how can i get them all in my exe program, and all installed correctly at once?

You normally don't need to do anything special. Just run py2exe on your main module and py2exe will deep-search it looking for imported modules and pull them into the zip file it creates that supports the exe.
This works fine for wxPython but I haven't tried with pyro but it should work.
You may have problems if you use the __import function instead of the import command. In that case you just explicitly specify the module that was not found either as a command line option or in the setup.py script.

In general the best way to find a Python module is to use Google [Google is our friend] though there is a pretty big list in the PyPI so it's always a good idea to check that out. Here are a bunch to get you started .

I've just tried vxApp->py2exe->app.exe path with a simple wxApp from Boa Getting Started Guide.
And it all works fine but...
Can I somehow get rid of that console window running in the background?
Distribution files are almost 8 Mbytes in size. That's a lot. Any way to reduce it? Just don't say Drop VX...

Not when you compare it like for like it isn't.
In your 8Mb you get your code, the Python interpreter and all its libraries (~10Mb) and wxWindows (~6Mb download).
C# or VB.Net require the .Net Framework to run, which is about 16Mb to download.
Java programs require the Java Runtime (15Mb).
VB4/5/6 programs require the VBRunX00.dll files.
Windows C++ programs often use extensions such as MFC which need to be bundled with their installers.
8Mb isn't much of an install these days. It will easily fit on a CD, or on almost any memory card/USB key. It's a two and a half minute download on 512Kb ADSL.
The only people who would have problems are dialup users... and they don't exist anymore... do they?

Which file of "Boa Constructor" should I download?
Maybe the "boa-constructor-0.3.1.win32.exe".
And which "wxPython" do I have to download?
Could you please make a link to the exact file.
Where can I get the wxPython 2.4 or what ever it is because when I use the boa constructor it always says I should downgrade my wxPython 2.5 to 2.4.
Where is the wxpython 2.4? I am desprete

You're right. Delphi got me used to relatively small execs and distributions. Although, its database support (BDE) is quite large also.

where can I get the "wxpythonWIN32-184.108.40.206u-Py23.exe"
Please post a link because i got everything else

Please give examples
