Streamtuner2 used to run under Windows. Current versions should still, but aren't tested anymore.

Else it requires a working Python installation first. That includes Python with Gtk bindings, the requests and pyquery packages.

  • The available .exe installer is really just a self-extracting ZIP. It'll unpack to Unix-style paths C:/usr/bin/ and C:/usr/share/streamtuner2.
    (The exe is actually more suitable now as raw zip/tarball, that just happens to have a wine GUI.)

  • With the new .pyz package it's even easier to use however. So that's now the recommended approach. Simply start it with:

    python streamtuner2.pyz
    

    Or rename it to have a .pyzw extension, in case your setup already picks that up.

  • In either case, you'll have to create a desktop shortcut yourself.

Streamtuner2 is primarily developed for BSD/Linux platforms. It's platform-agnostic through Python. On Windows there are enough alternatives already (more bling, mostly just limited in station sources), thus no significant userbase. Which is why this isn't considered a target.

There are probably modern Python distributions for Windows. No idea. It's definitely not something that should be handled on a per-application basis and with PyInstaller embellishments.
