I'm afraid that what you googled is still correct - only interfaces
implemented using IDispatch can be called by pywin32.

VB can use all interfaces, but I believe VBScript can not. Can you show me
some VBScript code that runs under the Windows Scripting Host (WSH - ie,
wscript.exe/cscript.exe) that does what you need?
