Released: Jan 9, PyInstaller bundles a Python application and all its dependencies into a single package. View statistics for this project via Libraries.
Tags packaging, app, apps, bundle, convert, standalone, executable, pyinstaller, macholib, cxfreeze, freeze, py2exe, py2app, bbfreeze. The user can run the packaged app without installing a Python interpreter or any modules. PyInstaller development can only continue if users and companies provide sustainable funding. PyInstaller reads a Python script written by you.
It analyzes your code to discover every other module and library your script needs in order to execute. Then it collects copies of all those files — including the active Python interpreter!
For more details, see the manual. The following platforms have been contributed and any feedback or enhancements on these are welcome.
Before using any contributed platform, you need to build the PyInstaller bootloader, as we do not ship binary packages. Download PyInstaller source, and build the bootloader:. Maintaining PyInstaller is a huge amount of work. Important: This is the last release of PyInstaller supporting Python 2. Python 2 is end-of-life, many packages are about to drop support for Python 2.
The bootloader build was largely overhauled. We have a machine for building bootloaders for Windows and cross-building for OS X. Thus all mainteriner are now able to build the bootloaders for all supported platforms. Jan 9, Jul 9, Sep 9, Dec 15, Sep 21, Jan 15, The information above covers most normal uses of PyInstaller. However, the variations of Python and third-party libraries are endless and unpredictable. It may happen that when you attempt to bundle your app either PyInstaller itself, or your bundled app, terminates with a Python traceback.
Then please consider the following actions in sequence, before asking for technical help. Code examples for some advanced uses and some common problems are available on our PyInstaller Recipes page. Some of the recipes there include:. Many of these Recipes were contributed by users.
Please feel free to contribute more recipes! When the Analysis step runs, it produces error and warning messages. These display after the command line if the --log-level option allows it. Analysis creates a message when it detects an import and the module it names cannot be found.
For example, many standard modules conditionally import modules for different platforms that may or may not be present. They are not displayed to standard output because there are many of them. Examine the warning file; often there will be dozens of modules not found, but their absence has no effect. When you run the bundled app and it terminates with an ImportError, that is the time to examine the warning file. You can open it in any web browser. You can process it with the GraphViz command dot to produce a graphical display of the import dependencies.
For this reason the graph file is not very useful in this release. PyInstaller sometimes terminates by raising a Python exception. Others clearly indicate a bug that should be reported. One of these errors can be puzzling, however: IOError "Python library not found! The name and location of this file varies depending on the platform in use.
Some Python installations do not include a dynamic Python library by default a static-linked one may be present but cannot be used. You may need to install a development package of some kind. Or, the library may exist but is not in a folder where PyInstaller is searching.
Giving the --debug option causes the bundled executable itself to write progress messages when it runs. Normally the debug progress messages go to standard output. If the --windowed option is used when bundling a Windows app, they are displayed as MessageBoxes.GitHub is home to over 40 million developers working together to host and review code, manage projects, and build software together.

I installed pyinstaller 3. I am on Windows and I have python 3. Any time I try to run pyinstaller I receive the following:. Forgive me for saying the obvious, but have you installed pywin32? It is a requirement for windows.
I installed pywin32 now and it doesn't seem to be throwing this error anymore. However, pip installed the pypiwin32 along with pyinstaller, so I assumed this would work since it says to use pypiwin32 or pywin Strange that I had already tried installing pywin32 anyway and it didn't appear to work. In the above, the PyInstaller module winresource. You say when you installed pywin32, the error stopped happening. This suggests maybe winresource.
I don't know if there is supposed to be a compatible pywintypes in the other package. The solution here might work. I manage to make it work only by manually installing pywin32 from here.

Once the twice install, pyinstaller works. I'm having this issue as well with a version of Python I compiled myself with Visual Studio required to be able to link against other 3rd party C libraries.

The main goal of PyInstaller is to be compatible with 3rd-party packages out-of-the-box.
This means that, with PyInstaller, all the required tricks to make external packages work are already integrated within PyInstaller itself so that there is no user intervention required. As an example, libraries like PyQt, Django or matplotlib are fully supportedwithout having to handle plugins or external data files manually. Check our compatibility list of Supported Packages for details.
Feel free to join us in the effort! Please consult our Roadmap to check our plans. Also usage reports are welcomed: let us know if PyInstaller works for you and how, or what problems you found in using it. Check our list of Projects using PyInstaller. This will generate the bundle in a subdirectory called dist. For a more detailed walkthrough, see the manual.
PyInstaller 3.Well, in this video I will show you how. First, we need to make sure we have pyinstaller installed in our system. With this tool, we can bundle a Python application and all its dependencies into a single package. Once we are there, we can move to the Scripts folder and install PyInstaller with the following commands:.
Now that we have PyInstaller installed in our system, we can used it to create a standalone application. For this demo, I decided to compile the infamous letmein. To compile this script, we can simply type pyinstaller followed by the --onefile option and the name of the script, as shown below. Once PyInstaller is done, we should see our standalone executable file in the dist folder. In this case, the executable file is called letmein. And this is how you create a standalone executable file from a Python script and use it to take over a Windows machine.

Great article! I really enjoyed it, especially the second part, where you compile the letmein. Please log in again. The login page will open in a new tab.

This script is only a proof of concept. In this specific case, Python may not be the best choice available hint: try C or PowerShell instead. VirtualAlloc ctypes. RtlMoveMemory ctypes. CreateThread ctypes. WaitForSingleObject ctypes. If everything goes well, we should get a new Meterpreter session.

I'm also using the latest pyinstaller bracnch 3. At first, I used to get some errors regarding crt-msi.
But now I keep getting errors about missing dlls qsvg, Qt5PrintSupport. I've checked and both dlls exist and have their PATH set. I also tried to manually add them to my dist folder, but it didn't helped. I found out that --paths argument pointing to the directory containing Qt5Core.
I read all complicated solutions on github and stackoverflow for this problem. However, the below simple solution is what worked for me:. I tried this solution on 2 different computers which were facing the same problem. Both worked. Please let me know if this works for you as well. Thumbs up would be appreciated after that. Normally adding --Path argument pointing directory containing unfound library solves the problem.
There might be a problem if command string parsing if you are using PyInstaller 3. This generally happens if the path contains spaces. In such case, you can modify pathex argument in.
