I'm quite sure that COM is the an problem. I called the object via JScript
and it works fine. Then I build a COM exe server. This way the COM object
will have his own python dll and it works fine also. For me, this looks like
the doubled interpreter is a problem, but I don't understand if it's my

I moved now back to VC6 and build a python22_d.dll/lib and a python_d.exe.
All files are copied to my Python installation (c:\python22). But with this
version I can not import win32com.client. Here is an interactive session:

win32api.pdy is in C:\Python22\Lib\site-packages\win32. Do I need to rebuild
it also as debug version? Any help to get an debug version up and running
would be very appreciated.
