Python Tools and Word COM Addins

Can Python Tools use python in Visual Studio to develop Microsoft COM Addins.

We don't have anything in PTVS to help with this specifically.

You may want to look at pywin32, which is a package that helps with using COM and Windows in general. That said, I have no idea whether it will help you write a COM addin for Office - it can certainly control it through Office's COM API (example), but may not let you act as a COM server.

Good luck!
