Python applications

Python applications can be run using py2exe (Windows only).

Alternatively, you can use the PyMW master/work framework, which is cross platform.

Using Py2Exe

py2exe allows you to make a standalone executable that envelops both the Python executable, and precompiled bytecode for your program. It is Windows-only.

I converted a python .py script into three files, a main executable, the C-run time dll msvcrt71.dll, and a third executable that is seemingly needed on Win9x. This runs on a system with no Python otherwise on it, with no path or whatever adjustments.

A Python binding of the BOINC API is described here.
