Building Python packages with C extensions under Windows

In order to build modules which have C extensions, you will need either the Visual Studio C++ compiler or MinGW.

Make sure that your Visual Studio C++ or MinGW program path is part of your system's program path, since the Python build system requires this.

To build and install a package with MinGW, you need to execute:

''python build -c mingw32 install''

from the command line.

To build a Windows installer when using MinGW, execute:

''python build -c mingw32 bdist_wininst''


Simply execute python innosetup.
