[python-win32] IActiveScript::AddNamedItem fails with exception

We have a scripting engine interface in our application. This works fine for
loading/calling VBscript and Javascript scripting engines, but PythonScript
fails. Specifically, it fails at :

    m_pAxsScript->AddNamedItem("application", SCRIPTITEM_NAMEDITEM)

where m_pAxsScript is the IActiveScript interface acquired through
CoCreateInstance. The hresult returned is:


which to my mind implies some kind of 'access denied' error. We are using
Python 2.7.2 and Pywin32 2.7 on a Windows 7 32-bit system. We have this
problem here on a test machine that was set up to match that in use at one
of our customers who is now stuck being unable to run any of his Python


Any clues or suggestions would be gratefully received.
