Use attribute ctypes_com_server of method setup to create a com dll server. Unlike the case with win32com, with ctypes.com only a dll server will be created. Also see: Py2exeAndWin32com & Py2exeAndCtypesComExeServer

You can define and instantiate a Target class to explicitly add version info resources that get attached to the file as metadata.

file setup.py would look something like this:

   1 # This is the distutils script for creating a Python-based com dll
   2 # server using ctypes.com.  This script should be run like this:
   3 #
   4 #  % python setup.py py2exe
   5 #
   6 # After you run this (from this directory) you will find two directories here:
   7 # "build" and "dist".  The .dll file in dist is what you are looking for.
