Hello,

I'm trying to create an addin for Outlook 2002 using the one provided
in the demo of win32com as a starting point. I've been able to do my
addin and test it if I go the "standard" way (using the python
interpreter). But now, I want other poeple to use it to I want to
freeze it for windows using py2exe and py2exe is giving me a headache.

First, I cannot seem to be able to register my addin with the resulting
executable. I've tried "directly" by creating only an executable and I
tried the same way the SpamBayes addin seems to be done, creating a dll
and registering that dll. no success.

Second, this one is more obscur and seems like a corrupt library to me.
If I import wx in my script, the executable won`t work. I get the
following error:
------------------
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "outlookAddin.py", line 39, in ?
  File "SaveOMaticApp.pyc", line 4, in ?
  File "wx\__init__.pyc", line 42, in ?
  File "wx\_core.pyc", line 164, in ?
AttributeError: 'module' object has no attribute 'SIZE_FORCE'
---------------
outlookAddin imports SaveOMaticApp which simply imports wx. No where I
use "SIZE_FORCE" and even wx\_core.py doesn't use SIZE_FORCE. Now, I
get this error here but not on my home computer which makes me think
it's a corrupt library or something.

But I would really appreciate if someone could help be to register my
addin. Here's my addin code. Again, this work using the Python
interpreter:
