For me a well written example with sufficient documentation works best.
Originally, I have had a bad time because our CADdy COM server has had a
intrinsically implementation error. After removing that I made good 
What is really important for me, is that the examples are correct and state 
of the art.
However, I'm unable to make a judgement for the given ones.

I do not have any problem with removing the cache directory. But I always 
run the

gencache.EnsureModule('{9C3BB401-114D-11D4-AC72-00105A4925FC}', 0, 1, 2, 
bForDemand=True) # CADdy.tlb

statement to ensure at runtime the existence of the typelibrary wrapper
modules. Actually, I won't run makepy.py at all.

Thank you very much
