The FIRST question to ask is whether this is really an IronPython
script, or is it just a traditional C Python script, and you happened to
come here because a Google search intersected "python" and "managed" and
sent you here? At this point, the vast majority of "3rd party Python
scripts" are C Python scripts.
If the script uses modules that are common to both implementations, then
you could use either one. If the script needs C/C++ modules, or
standard library routines that aren't part of IronPython, then you might
need to download and install a traditional Python distribution and use
System.Process to launch it.
