Hello,

I needed the display statement for demonstration purposes only. You are right,
that ordinarily I have to assign the result to a variable.
The solution is that the makepy utility generated a wrong file name for the
Microsoft Word object library resp. Python looked for a wrong name.
The part after 'x' (00020905-0000-0000-C000-000000000046x409x8x0.py) was wrong.
Now all works fine with win32all-163 resp. ActivePython2.3.2-132.
