    I want to Automate Maxsurf modeler and Maxsurf stability from python. In documentation it is provided in VBA but I want to do it in python. I'am trying following code to get Maxsurf application:
    msapp = win32com.client.Dispatch("MAXSURF Modeller.Application")
    Please guide me how to do it.
    Thank you!

    I had the same problem and I'm still at the very beginning in automating Maxsurf.
    But now I found out that following works:
    msapp = win32com.client.Dispatch("BentleyModeler.Application")
    @vishal: I think that you already got it too, or you gave it up ;-)
    for all others it might be a hint.
