python cx_Freeze application not starting on Windows 10


I'm trying to create an executable from a .py file. I've managed to create the .exe with cx_Freeze but when I double click on it nothing happens. I've looked at the event viewer error and this shows up:

Faulting application name: python.exe, version:, time stamp: 0x5da4cb35

Faulting module name: ntdll.dll, version: 10.0.17763.831, time stamp: 0x6071cf9d

Exception code: 0xc0000005

Fault offset: 0x000763a3

Faulting process id: 0x16a8

Faulting application start time: 0x01d5ddbc52c0cd5f

Faulting application path: C:\Users\admin\AppData\Local\Programs\Python\Python38-32\python.exe

Faulting module path: C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\ntdll.dll

Report Id: dc486cf5-4b21-4ac7-9e96-02e0fb4ee0eb

Faulting package full name:

Faulting package-relative application ID:

The initial code is:

import shutil
import os
import os.path
from os import path
import tkinter as tk
from tkinter.messagebox import showinfo

def move():
    dir = initialdir.get()
    exts = b.get()
    finalDir = c.get()
    files = os.listdir(dir)
    exts = exts.split()
    initialFinalDir = finalDir
    for ext in exts:
        ext = ext.lower()
        finalDir = finalDir + '\\' + ext
        if not os.path.exists(finalDir):
        for file in files:
            if file.endswith(ext):
                initialFile = dir + '\\' + file
                shutil.move(initialFile, finalDir)
        finalDir = initialFinalDir
    showinfo("All done")

win = tk.Tk()

tk.Label(win, text="Initial folder").grid(row=0)
initialdir = tk.Entry(win)
initialdir.grid(row=0, column=1)

tk.Label(win, text="Extensions").grid(row=1)
b = tk.Entry(win)
b.grid(row=1, column=1)

tk.Label(win, text="Final folder").grid(row=2)
c = tk.Entry(win)
c.grid(row=2, column=1)

image = tk.PhotoImage(file="button_smaller.PNG")
button = tk.Button(win, command=move, image=image)
button["bd"] = "0"
button.grid(row=3, column=2)


and the setup code is:

import cx_Freeze
import sys
import os

base = None

if sys.platform == 'win32':
    base = "Win32GUI"

executables = [cx_Freeze.Executable("", base=base, icon="icoana.ico")]

    options={"build_exe": {"packages":["tkinter"], "include_files":["icoana.ico", "button_smaller.png"]}},
    description="First test of Movable",

Can you please help me figure out what is happening, thank you :)
