Hello everyone,

I'm new. I'm Martin from Spain and in spite of working as Java programmer,
I love Python and try to develop with it and learn as much as I can.

I started using imdbPY and I was very happy with the low difficulty in
larning how to use this tool. I made quickly a script which retrieves info
from IMDb movies based on the input ID of the movie itself.

I was developing under Ubuntu and it was always working, but giving an
error, so I kept on.

The problem came when I did want to make a Windows '.exe' file for
distributing it. It seems that under Ubuntu you can execute with python
properly despite the error, but in Windows the .exe file does not continue.

The error is down here, and after it, I'm pasting my code, which is a
single '.py' file. I tried creating a 'imdbpy.cfg' at the same directory,
but it goes the same.

The error happens just at the IMDb() call, as commented in my source code.
When execued with Python under Windows the code works, but when I make the
'.exe' with pyInstaller I checked that the execution stops at that line.

I need some clue, even for researching myself and know how to make a '.exe'
that works properly.

Thanks in advance.
