In order to save me time in the future trying to figure out how to install ActiveX Scripting Support in ActiveState Python, here's a little reminder.

  1. Download Microsoft Visual C++ 2008 SP1 Redistributable Package http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=5582.
  2. Download ActiveState Python http://www.activestate.com/activepython.
  3. Download Python for Windows Extensions http://sourceforge.net/projects/pywin32/files/pywin32/Build%20218/.
  4. Install everything in the same order.
  5. Execute C:Python27Libsite-packageswin32comextaxscriptclientpyscript.py

That's it! Enjoy!
