[python-win32] excelRTDServer demo not working

I've downloaded pywin32-210.zip and installed it on my "Windows XP
Professional" machine. I've been trying to get the demo
com/win32com/demos/excelRTDServer.py to work, but have not had
success. I'm using MS Excel 2003.
When I add a cell in Excel (with
=RTD("Python.RTD.TimeServer","","seconds","5")) I get a cryptic "#N/A".
When I run the excelRTDServer program it states that it has
successfully registered. I can instantiate an object of
"Python.RTD.TimeServer" from the win32com ide. I can register with
"--debug" and see trace messages when I instantiate it from win32com
ide. However, when I launch Excel with the above cell formula, I
don't see any trace messages at all.
I have disabled security on macros in Excel.
Any ideas? Can anyone confirm if the demo works elsewhere?
Thanks in advance,
