Thank you for the reply!

It seems that that's not always the case, and the converted .exe doesn't always contain the same stuff.

For example, and I apologize for not having the code and error messages anymore... I had a script (in PyCharm) that pulled a 2 values from a SQL table, then just subtracted them and printed out the difference (up to the thenth position). It worked fine, but once I converted it, I received an error that the "Decimal" module/library could not be found. I never called "Decimal", but one of my colleagues said it was part of the standard python installation. So we assumed the issue, then, was that the "Decimal" library/module/package was excluded from the final build.

I've since been unable to resolve this problem and built the app using something else, but I'd love to try again sometime.
