What do you mean by "just a pain and led to nowhere"? I'm also not sure what 
you mean by a "WinCE build" of comtypes because the library is written in 
Python and there is nothing to "build". If you are figuring out how to use 
comtypes I highly recommend learning on desktop Windows first because it 
will be faster to develop and there are a lot more things you can do with 
COM than on WinCE.
