Ahh ok yes ... makes sence. I was looking for some documentation and found a
snipplet <http://www.oreilly.de/catalog/pythonwin32/chapter/ch12.html> of
"Python Programming on Win32" by Mark Hammond & Andy Robinson witch states,
I thought, that the early binding files are just some kind of a "cache file"

That should be all you have to do, but looking at your file I think you'll

OK so I can't make my own FlashMod Object, instead I use the SMTMemtool
Object to create one. But why do the type cast? After the casting the
*fs*object is no longer a "
*CoClassBaseClass*" it's now a "*DispatchBaseClass*", am I right?

Hmm it's not that easy finding good documentation for Python-win32! A lot of
the stuff I found seems to be rather old and maybe outdated ... Is there
some must read documentation about the Python-Win32-COM Stuff out there you
can recommend?
