PyInstaller is available on PyPI. You can install it through pip:

pip install pyinstaller


Basic usage is very simple, just run it against your main script:

pyinstaller /path/to/

For more details, see the manual.

Experimental ports

  • Solaris
    • ldd
    • objdump
  • AIX
    • AIX 6.1 or newer. Python executables created using PyInstaller on AIX 6.1 should work on AIX 5.2/5.3. PyInstaller will not work with statically linked Python libraries which has been encountered in Python 2.2 installations on AIX 5.x.
    • ldd
  • FreeBSD
    • ldd

Before using experimental ports, you need to build the PyInstaller bootloader, as we do not ship binary packages. Download PyInstaller sources, and build the bootloader:

cd bootloader
python ./waf configure build install

then install PyInstaller:

python install

or simply use it direclty from the source (

You can’t perform that action at this time.
