I am using until now Panda3D SDK 1.8.1 and packp3d with python : it works well.
I have installed this evening Panda3D SDK 1.9.0, it seems that packp3d.exe is replaced by packp3d.py : yes or no ?
When I launch the following command to build a p3d package :
C:\Panda3D-1.9.0-x64\python\python.exe C:\Panda3D-1.9.0-x64\direct\p3d\packp3d.py -o C:\Users\philippe\Documents\game\editorV0-1.p3d -d C:\Users\philippe\Documents\game\editor\code -m main.py -n csv -n db -n sql -r sqlite -r morepy -r wx
I got this message :
This script must be run using a version of Panda3D that has been built
for distribution. Try using ppackage.p3d or packp3d.p3d instead.
If you are running this script for development purposes, you may also
set the Config variable panda-package-host-url to the URL you expect
to download these contents from (for instance, a file:// URL).
How to solve this issue ?
thanks in advance
Note : the error message is raised by Packager.py :
line 2640 if not PandaSystem.getPackageVersionString() or not PandaSystem.getPackageHostUrl():
Just install the Panda3D Runtime, download packp3d1.9.p3d, and run “panda3d.exe packp3d1.9.p3d” in your command prompt. You may have to add the installation directory of the Panda3D Runtime to your system PATH.

In the game I display a basic tk GUI when i use the key “a” on the keyboard. When I use this key the p3d package crashes.
I got the following error :

This probably means that Tcl wasn't installed properly.
It seems that the panda3d.exe search init.tcl in these directories :
Wxpython is not supported for Windows in the packaging system at the moment (and not planned right now “It’s something that will happen eventually”) due to huge work involved - see rdb’s answer at [url]Panda3D 1.9 runtime distribution - please test!])
