I echo the appreciation for the 64-bit Windows installers.

Since I've got both the x86 and x64 PyQt4 packages installed on my
system, both of them are listed in %PATH%.  py2exe seems to be
supremely confused by this and will always pick up Qt*.dll from the
first PyQt4/bin folder in the path.  So I've had to add logic like
below to my installer build scripts to remove these extra folders from
the PATH if they are not within the current Python interpreter's exec

    path = installenv.get('PATH', '').split(os.pathsep)
    deletions = []
    for dir in path:
        if dir.endswith(r'Lib\site-packages\PyQt4\bin') and \
            not dir.startswith(sys.exec_prefix):
    for dir in deletions:
