Hi Chris,

The Python COM browser shows the same GUID for the excel type
libraries.  It does report 'Microsoft Excel 11.0 Object Library'
instead of 'version 10' which is referenced in the code.  However, if
I change the MAJOR to 2, I can't register the class at all (it reports
a library not registered error).  I can change the minor (eg, to 5 but
it still doesn't work).

Any ideas where I could get the actual numbers from?

Thanks again,
