Compile Python Scripts to Executables


Dear Graphisoft Community,


I was wondering if it is possible to compile python scripts into .exe files and get it to work.

I tried different "compilers" for python like 'pyinstaller' or 'nuitka', but the compiled scripts don't work (it seems like they can't gest past the "conn = ACConnection.connect()" line).

Is there a way to circumvent this or are executable scripts bound to fail?


Dear Regards



I tried it with auto-py-to-exe and was also kept getting an AssertionError after 

conn = ACConnection.connect(). 
I suspect the compiler is not including in all the required dependencies of the Archicad pip package into the exe.  I'll have a dig through the source to see what might be going on.
