I (nearly) always use win32com.client.gencache.EnsureDispatch. There
are a few occasions when it refuses to play, and then I'm back to

import win32com.client

word = win32com.client.gencache.EnsureDispatch ("Word.Application")
# does the same as Dispatch ("Word.Application") but does
#  the makepy stuff first if it needs to.
