makepy.py not working

Hallo,

I've a problem getting makepy running. When I start the tool on my
machine with doubleclick everything is fine.
But when I try this in my Code:

makepy.py -i "Microsoft Excel 11.0 Object Library(1.5)"

I am getting an Syntax Error and command:

makepy.py

bring me this message on the screen:

Traceback (most recent call last):
File "<interacti ve input>", line 1, in <module>
NameError: name 'makepy' is not defined

Any ideas what I am doing wrong?

This syntax is used to run makepy.py script from command line.

Python interpreter obviously accepts only valid python code, like this:

import win32com.client .makepy
win32com.client .makepy.ShowInf o("Microsoft Excel 11.0 Object Library(1.5)")

Ok, thanks for your help. After looking into the makepy.py file it was
clear that this is only a command for the CMD console.

I want to write a function which generates this .py file of the excel
objects. I will now send the command to the CMD threw my python code.

thanks again.

Does makepy always respect versioning of interfaces? It appears as though makepy correctly handles versioning of objects you obtain directly, but not for objects you get via a function call. Here's a simple example to illustrate the point. I created the C++-based server for this example by pilfering some code in Andrew Troelsen's book on COM and ATL. car = Dispatch("ScriptibleCoCar.DualCoCar") person =...

Just a general question. It seems in COM late binding is something that should be avoided if possible. Because python seems to be really good at doing thing dynamically I'm wondering why no one has figured out how to make the functionality in makepy fire automagically when you need it. For example, it would be nice if you are creating an object repeatedly(ADODB.Recordset) that some logic would trigger whatever

Has anyone seen this? When I run the COM Makepy utility and choose Microsoft Excel 9.0 Object Library (1.3), I get an application error message: PythonWin: Pythonwin.exe - Application Error The instruction at "0x77fcc87" referenced memory at "0x0307a705". The memory could not be "read". I do not get this error when I choose the Microsoft Office 9.0 Object Library (2.1).
