Can not get binary dependencies. Too Many Files to unpack

Thomas Hull
Hello.  This problem probably has been solved before and if so I apologize for cluttering up this forum with already resolved questions.  I am relatively new to Python and have only written a few  scripts.  I am having trouble creating an executable from a simple Hello Word test script using pyinstaller.  This scrip runs correctly from the command line.  When I try to build it into an executable I get the following.  To get to this point I thought I needed to install the Windows SDK and I see that pyinstaller is looking in one of those directories when I get the warnings.  The resulting .exe in the dist folder only flashes the command prompt screen then closes.  Can you help please? Thanks in advance.

Re: Can not get binary dependencies. Too Many Files to unpack

Hi,

A lot of PyInstaller build warnings are harmless so I wouldn’t assume that that is the issue just yet.

We’d need to see the runtime traceback to say anything useful. Launch your exe from cmd by entering its path dist\TestScript\TestScript.exe. Your app should launch and still fail but cmd wont close so you’ll be able to see the error. If the error isn’t self-explanatory then copy it and post it here. If you find copy/paste in cmd painful, use the following to get it as a text file:

dist\TestScript\TestScript.exe > errors.txt 2>&1
start errors.txt
