When you say "doesn't do anything when run", do you perhaps mean that 
you have some print statements in your program and you don't see them 
when you run it from a command shell? If so, then this is expected, and 
you need to add the "--win-console" option.

If it's something else, then Alexey's suggestion is the next thing to try.
