  • Run your own script by dropping into the directory Symbian\9.3\S60_3rd_FP2_Beta\epoc32\winscw\c\python

Distributable

  • I couldn't get py2sis to work, ensymble is a winner.
  • Install it on your path and go for it
  • Check out ensymble.py py2sis -h

ensymble.py py2sis --appname=App --caption="App" --version="0.1" main.py apponly.sis
