Hi Mark,

thanks for the replay and apologies for mispelling your name. The
application that I'm trying to get working is FinalBuilder
( a build/release tool. Would it be possible
to suggest a small thirdparty product support PythonScript and
ActiveScripting that would be good for a test harness so as to do
comparative testing ? Is there any fundamental difference between the Win32
1.48all and the ActiveState distribution ? I'm assuming that you are right
in terms of the application support as the internet explorer test pages
appear to work after registering the python activescript script.



You located in Melb/Syd ?

It is likely to be some strange interaction between PythonScript and the 
host.  Python works fine in all MS hosts, and quite a number of 3rd 
party ones.  What application is it?
