Are you talking about an equivalent of perl's win32::OLE module for emacs
( If so I wonder how
hard it
would be to convert it to be elisp friendly. Does emacs let you dynamically
load dlls or would it need to be started as a separate process?  

It seems like Reini Urban was/is doing some work on COM support
( - w32ole link)
but I think this is for XEmacs not Emacs.
