I find it hard to believe that you can't do that in Python.  For one
thing, Jython is an implementation of Python that runs on top of the
JVM (as opposed to having its own VM implemented in C).  Through the
use of Jython, Python code can access anything that Java code can.
Thus if you can use Java, you can use Jython to achieve the same
result.  I'm not familiar with ActiveX at all, but if it is related to
COM, I know that CPython has good COM support.

Maybe this will help,
