Sure this will work.  You can call COM server code from Python
no matter what the COM server is written in.  I've written
COM servers in Python and called from Python, VB, PowerBuilder,
etc.  I've also called COM servers written in other languages.

I like the combination of py2exe and Inno Setup.  py2exe
create standalone code and Inno to create a distributable
installer.
