I guess there is a tool called Py2Exe to convert a Python application into an executable file. Since I am also using PyQt4 for GUI apps., what are the external dependencies for such an executable? What type of files I need to bundle along with my Setup? Is there any Python Setup Builder tool?

You might want to ask this on StackOverflow, since it's not about "programming" but specifically about Py2exe. You also might want to check the FAQ's – S.Lott Jan 11 '11 at 22:39

If you do have the rights to redistribute MSVCR90.dll, there should be a copy of it in your Visual Studio install, under VC\redist\x86\Microsoft.VC90.CRT. Since Visual Studio 2008, you can't just copy this DLL file - you also need the manifest file that you'll find there.
