Does anyone know how to get the Microsoft Word 11.0 Object library
working in ActiveState Python 2.4.1? When I go into PythonWin and try
to load it under makePy, I get the following error:

>>> Generating to C:\Python24\lib\site-packages\win32com\gen_py\00020905-0000-0000-C000-000000000046x0x8x3.py

Any clue?
