What are the return values of myAppService.ServiceMethod()?
Depending upon these values, you will need to handle them before
sending them to the pe.

So it sounds like you need something like:

public int COUNT;

private void MyIPGetCount()
      //Call your Service method and assign return value to a global
      COUNT = myAppService.getcount();

      //Create variable bridge from C# to IronPython engine
      //I like to pretend I am just using a IP command line to help
figure out what I need to do
      pe.ExecuteCommand("PyCount = 0");

      //Set the IronPython bridge variables...
            pe.ExecuteCommand("PyCountTwo = PyCount");

This is a simplified version of what I am guess what you need to do
but there you go.
