makepy must be run after restart of pythonwin


thank you for the hint, but i solved the problem myself.
i didnt knew that that the following two lines in py-script must be added:

from win32com.client import gencache
gencache.Ensure Module('{00062F FF-0000-0000-C000-000000000046}', 0,8,0)

now it works fine. my skills in python in python are not really advanced, so
the python-mailinglists are good help for me.

so long


i'm using pythonwin 2.2.3
my programm reads and write the outlook-adress book using COM. for this i
have to use the makepy utility. after i have run the utiltity everything is
fine and i can run my py-file without any errors.
but if i close the pythonwin and restart and then try to run my py-script i
get the following error:

File "C:\Program Files\Python22\ contacts_ausgab e.py", line 45, in
DumpDefaultAdd ressBook
folder =
mapi.GetDefaul tFolder(win32co m.client.consta nts.olFolderCon tacts)
File "C:\PROGRA~1\Py thon22\lib\site-packages\win32c om\client\__ini t__.py",line 168, in __getattr__
raise AttributeError, a
AttributeError : olFolderContact s

I suggest you examine the attributes of win32com.client .constants. Perhaps
there is a case sensitivity issue. makepy can cause attributes that were
previously case insensitive to become case sensitive.

I also recall somewhere a discussion about win32com.client .constants not
being populated immediately. Consider waiting a moment after dispaching.

Hi, I use the makepy tool in pythonwin to generate wrappers for my connection point (event) interfaces in a project. It works fine. The question is; Is it possible, in a python script, to detect if wrappers for COM (event) interfaces the script uses have been created, and in case not somehow call the makepy tool manually before proceeding? How should this be done? Best regards, Svenn-Ivar

Hi! I've just written a Python speech-recognition module (http:// pyspeech.googlecode.com). It provides a clean and simple interface to the Microsoft Speech SDK using COM wrapper classes generated by PythonWin's MakePY utility. Once this is a mature module, I'd like to make it as useful as possible to the community, so I'd like to make installation as simple as possible. Currently, to get speech.py to work, you must first:

Overview: Windows 11 and 10 have less user interface control over operating system update behaviour than previous versions of Windows.

For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...
