Compiling/running as '.exe.

Posted on 2004-09-03

My Visual Basic application can run other executables by calling shell('filename') - if I try putting a '.py' filename in the brackets it won't have it, probably because it wants an executable file. Can I run a python file through an .exe file, such as "something.exe /myfile.py"? Or can I compile my Python source to an '.exe' of its own. Sorry for being lazy, but I'm a bit snowed under right now!

Oops forgot the closing bracket. Basically, it's like this:

shell("path/to/python.exe path/to/yourscript.py");

where it's separated by a space.
