com: makepy gencache.EnsureModule

P: n/a

I' having a problem with gencache.EnsureModule:

I used win32com\client\ 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.Application".

Using win32com\client\ -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
0, 1, 0)

Looking in win32com\gen-py, the appropriate file _does_ exist:
and it does contain the correct class definitions.

Then, in my code:
>>mod = win32com.client.gencache.EnsureModule('{801A2001-A66C-11D3-A8BD-0000861EBBD6}', 0, 1, 0)
>>ob = win32com.client.Dispatch("SldWorks.Application")
<COMObject SldWorks.Application>

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

Thanks for your hints, Kai
