Could you post some of the scripts it's not working in please? Very difficult to reproduce results (or debug) without knowing what's being used.

Look at the documentation:


It is hard to believe that SetVariable "doesn't work". What is much more likely is that you are sending it bad data. According to that page about the only thing that can go wrong is the name of the variable being wrong.

eg. this would not work:

world.SetVariable "**bad variable name**", "foo"

I'm not sure where it is documented, but variables must start with a letter, then consist of A-Z, a-z, 0-9 or the underscore character.
