#1574 assigned defect

package python3 client on win32

Reported by: Antoine Martin Owned by: Antoine Martin
Priority: minor Milestone: 3.0
Component: packaging Version: trunk
Keywords: win32 Cc:


Problem is that MSYS2 ships python 3.6 now, the version of cx_freeze that we use (the only one that works for python2) is 4.3.4... but that one does not build with python 3.5 or 3.6. Ouch.
The latest cx_freeze version 5 does produce a package, but not a usable one...


  • fix cx_freeze 5 support (#1528) - preferred option
  • find the patches to allow us to build cx_freeze 4.3.4 against python 3.5

Hi Antoine, MSYS2 also ships Python 2.7 (actually 3 versions, 2 native and one msys2/cygwin-y).

We already use the python 2.7 from MSYS2, this ticket is about moving to python3 in time for the 3.0 release. Or at least having a usable python3 version on MS Windows.
