I want to make a standalone python app, but want to embed the python installer in the .SIS file. I tried adding this line to my .pkg file:
but am getting the following error with makesis:
app.pkg(49) : error: file not found
the @"PythonFor... line is line #49. It's definitely in the same directory as the .pkg file, and I run makesis from that directory, so I'm not sure what could be going wrong. Also, when I gave it the wrong UID for the Python .SIS, makesis complained, so it's definitely finding the the Ptyhon .SIS file. Any ideas?

I don't know what SDK you are using, older SDKs might have some problems with embedding SIS files.
If you really don't succeed embedding SIS files (try also giving e.g. ".\" prefix for the SIS file or even the full path) you could always "unsis" the package and add the needed files explicitly (this wipes out the signature though). The tool can be downloaded from:
