Default Create MEAnalyzer executable from Github Python Scripts

Each new release of ME Analyzer only has the scripts but no executable file. It's handy for me to just run the exe in Windows, so came up with the following guide for those that might want it. Didn't see anywhere else how to do it, apologies if it is documented somewhere and I've just missed it.

ME Analyzer – create Windows executable from Python script from GitHub

1. Install Python 3.xx from https://www.python.org/downloads/ – select to add Python to PATH during installation. Current version is Python V3.11.

2. Open an elevated Windows Command Prompt Window to run the following steps.

3. Confirm Python is correctly installed; enter
py --version
(should return Python 3.xx.x if ok)

4. Confirm PIP is installed (should be part of the source installation of Python)
py -m pip --version
(should return pip 22.3.1 or similar)

5. Confirm PIP, setuptools and wheel are up to date;
py -m pip install --upgrade pip setuptools wheel

6. Install MEAnalyzer pre-requisites:
py -m pip install colorama crccheck pltable

7. Download source.zip from latest release of ME Analyzer:
https://github.com/platomav/MEAnalyzer/releases

8. Extract source.zip to a directory (e.g. C:\MEAnalyzer-r316)

9. In a command prompt window, install auto-py-to-exe:
py -m pip install auto-py-to-exe

10. Run auto-py-to-exe:
py -m auto_py_to_exe

11. From auto_py_to_exe GUI;
Script Location, Browse to path to extracted ME Analyzer contents above (e.g. C:\MEAnalyzer-r316) and select MEA.py
Select One File
Select Windows Based

12. Click Convert .PY to .EXE

13. Click Open Output Folder and copy MEA.exe to your MEAnalyzer directory.

14. Future versions of MEAnalyzer, you just need to proceed from step 7 usually.

@reformatt, Nice detailed steps. Though the information is available on net but its not in the same website. You have nicely summed it up.

Not sure about that error, as I don't see that on my system. Are you using Powershell or Command Console? I use the latter with admin rights.

Edit: Ok I see the error occurs after you launch the EXE. This has started happening on the latest release r318 (r316 did not have this problem). Can confirm using console based during exe creation solves the problem.

I was wondering how to make (.exe) file for ME Analyzer, and I found this thread by a coincidence.
Thanks for sharing this helpful information, I tried with (MEAnalyzer-1.283.3-r312), got the same Error as in Post #5 and I avoided it by choose (Console Based). Now everything is working fine.

Yes, all dependencies are bundled into the exe. It runs on my workshop machine which does not have Python installed for example.
