Problems with Tkinter in py2exe

I made a a simple GUI program in python with tkinter and attempted to convert it to an .exe using py2exe. However, I've run into a problem. When I try to run the exe it flashes an error very quickly then disapears. So the best I could do was take a screan shot of the error.

How do I go about fixing this?

Edit

Velociraptors, this is my setup file. It's about as basic as it can be. How would I go about integrating init.tcl into the code?

from distutils.core import setup
import py2exe

setup(console=[r'C:\Python26\Random Password Generator.py'])

Answer

Does your setup.py script include init.tcl in the data_files option? The py2exe list of options says that's how you should include images and other required data files.

Edit:

Your setup script specifies that your program should be converted to a console exe. If you want a GUI program (which you do, since you're using Tkinter), you need to use the windows option:

setup(windows=[r'C:\Python26\Random Password Generator.py'])

Py2exe should correctly include Tkinter's dependencies. If not, you can manually include init.tcl:

setup(data_files=['C:\Python26\tcl\tcl8.5\init.tcl'],
      windows=[r'C:\Python26\Random Password Generator.py'])
