Note: I meant to type, "Can you edit the python program without manually installing a python interpreter?"




I have been a member several times for many years, but have lost my account info. I greatly appreciate

the help I get on these forums.


I love Linux, and have a Windows 7 PC, but use VirtualBox to run Linux, using Ubuntu in particular, because I simply like the Operating system that much. smile.png


Anyway, I was wondering if py2exe actually compiled a python interpreter within an exe, if this is the case, which seems only logical, otherwise how would the program run? 


My question is, since the program is compiled, is the Python code somehow turned into machine code,

so that any tweaking or editing of Python source code is impossible? In short, can the program, once

compiled and run on Windows, ever be modified with other Python code?


Thanks! smile.png
