First, the python-dev mailing list is used for developing the Python language
itself, not developing WITH Python.  For questions about developing with Python,
please use the newsgroup comp.lang.python.

ctypes.com is very old and has been superseeded by the comtypes
package: http://starship.python.net/crew/theller/comtypes/

An even more popular package for using COM with python is
pywin32: http://sourceforge.net/projects/pywin32/
