I am using windows xp, python 2.5.4, with build 213 of pywin32. I am
brand new to pywin32, and I have gathered some info from various web
searches on how to use the library. I'm clearly doing something wrong.
I am in the process of switching from Matlab to Python, and one thing I
need to do is to use an ocx library to control some hardware. Here is
how I do it in matlab, which works just fine:
>> h_pa5 = actxcontrol('PA5.x',[1 1 1 1])
>> pa5ret = invoke(h_pa5,'ConnectPA5','USB',1)
>> invoke(h_pa5, 'SetAtten', 10)
...With python-win32, I seem to be able to connect to the library, but I
can't issue any commands:
>>> import win32com.client
>>> axPA5 = win32com.client.Dispatch("PA5.X")
Traceback (most recent call last):
com_error: (-2147418113, 'Catastrophic failure', None, None)
What am I doing wrong?
