I faced the same problem as you: If the end user has to install everything 
needed to run my code my code is dead. If you target non-programers then 
don't ask them to install a development system. For python programs under 
windows I use cx_freeze to generate an stand-alone application and the 
nullsoft installer (nsis project at sourceforge) to deploy it. The download 
may be huge, but for the end user is really easy to install the code.

Best regards,
