Can it be opened with a regular archive program (Winzip, 7zip, ...)?

I get the same message about missing kjbuckets always (but everything
works), I'm rather sure that's not the problem.

I've put my version of py2exe on my website at:


You can download it and place it inside the Python installation folder
