com: makepy gencache.Ensure Module


I' having a problem with gencache.Ensure Module:

I used win32com\client \makepy.py to successfully generate Python
Unfortunately, after I call win32com.client .Dispatch(), the object I
get back is of type "COMObject" instead of one of the generated

In particular, I'm trying to interact with SolidWorks Extensibility
Type Library and the PROGID is "SldWorks.Appli cation".

Using win32com\client \makepy.py -i
SolidWorks Extensibility Type Library
{801A0000-A66C-11D3-A8BD-0000861EBBD6}, lcid=0, major=1, minor=0
>># Use these commands in Python code to auto generate .py support
from win32com.client import gencache
gencache.Ensu reModule('{801A 0000-A66C-11D3-A8BD-0000861EBBD6}',
0, 1, 0)

Looking in win32com\gen-py, the appropriate file _does_ exist:
801A0000-A66C-11D3-A8BD-0000861EBBD6x0x 1x0.py
and it does contain the correct class definitions.

Then, in my code:
>>mod = win32com.client .gencache.Ensur eModule('{801A2 001-A66C-11D3-A8BD-0000861EBBD6}', 0, 1, 0)
>>ob = win32com.client .Dispatch("SldW orks.Applicatio n")
<COMObject SldWorks.Applic ation>

Why are the object mod is None and the object ob is <COMObject
SldWorks.Applic ation instead <win32com.gen_p y.<blah>>?
Any bright ideas as to what's going wrong here?

Thanks for your hints, Kai

I don't know anything about COM beyond the fact that I can look in the OLE/COM browser to maybe figure out the API that an object has that I need to operate on. Usually this gets me by fine; I've written mostly utilities for Developer Studio which work fine if a little slow, and a bit of junk for some other bits of the MS Office suite. ...
