Did you register Python as an ActiveScript host? I believe this is done for
you automatically if you use the installer and not done for you if you
don't. It's possible that it gets done for you the first time you run the
PythonWin IDE too.

Have a look at this file: \Python22\Lib\site-packages\win32com\readme.htm
