Just compile and start.

This is a known (to me, at least) bug: the version info resources are
probably not correct - they also don't show up on win98.  But I never
cared enough to fix that.  It would be great if someone could do this,
the code is all in Python, in py2exe\resources\VersionInfo.py.

That may, or may not, be related.  I have no idea.
