[wingide-users] OT: Win executable problem

I know this is O.T. but I'm confused about where to turn. I have an  
app that runs fine in OSX (10.4, probably also 10.3). It runs fine  
inside the WingIDE on both OSX and WinXP. But I can't get my WinXP  
executable to run.

My setup.py (both the Mac and the Win version) is very much the same  
as the one I used for another app that runs fine on both platforms.  
On Windows I'm using py2exe and InnoSetup.

The error message I get in the log file indicates that the executable  
is not finding stuff in the lib.zip file -- which, after  
installation, is right there inside the same folder in which the .exe  
file is sitting.

I'm sure I'm forgetting something very, very simple; but I hardly  
ever work on Windows except to build final executables. Any hints  
welcome; I'm glad to do the research but I'm baffled about where to
