[IronPython] WPF module in IronPython scripting?

Unfortunately loading the Assembly didn't work, it threw an error:

dotNet runtime exception: Could not add reference to assembly 

Nothing else. :(

Unfortunately we don't have access to the Host app's source at all,
we're only writing a .NET plugin that enables us to run IronPython
inside the host app's native scripting language.

But I'll talk to the programmer who wrote the actual IPy plugin
for me and see what the problem might be.

I just thought it's something related to .NET and IPy only.

Thank you!
