Installation from source: Download and install PyQt4, either from sources, or through a software management system (on debian based systems, that is apt-get install python-qt4). Python is normally installed on these systems, python version 2.5 is suggested, since the program has not been tested on older versions. You will also need package python-setuptools.

Change to the directory were you have extracted indywiki and run:

$cd src/indywiki 
or to install the program, run as root
#python install
If you want you can build PyQt4 from source, see more on

Windows executables are included , in order for windows users to be able to run the program without having to get and install python, pyqt and qt. However, by making this an executable (using py2exe program) , it contains python+pyqt4 modules as windows DLL's, that's why the size is extremely big (~23mb).
As an alternative, you can download and install python, qt, sip and pyqt4 modules and run the code, instead of the executable.
