Py2Exe, [Errno 2] No file or directory of this type: 'numpy-atlas.dll'

advertisements

I have included matplotlib in my program, I searched about numpy_atlas.dll on google and I seem to be the only one on Earth with this problem.

setup.py

from setuptools import setup
import py2exe

setup(console=['EulerMethod.py'])

Running Py2Exe results in error

C:\(..obmitted..)>python setup.py py2exe

Sounds like py2exe can't find dll. Following script will make py2exe quiet:

distutils.core.setup(
options = {
    "py2exe": {
        "dll_excludes": ["MSVCP90.dll"]
    }
},
...

)

You still need to make sure that dll is on the user's machine. I believe numpy-atlas.dll is one of matplot dependencies.

Also consider using PyInstaller if everything else fails.
