Hi Jeremy,

Thanks for your answer. Yes that is exactly the product. 
I already contacted their customer support and they helped me to connect to
C#.NET from EyeonScript via LuaInterface.

But I would like to connect to EyeonScript from C#.NET.
This is basically what I did:
- I made a sample project for LuaInterface in Visual Studio (see attachment)
- I renamed eyeonscript.dll to lua50.dll (so that LuaInterface would load
the renamed eyeonscript.dll which seemed to work).
- I tried to type some EyeonScript specific commands and got the error
messages attempt to call global `Fusion' (a nil value) (see below).
- When it didn't work I tried to find answers in many forums etc. which
didn't work either. You are the first one to answer :).

Could you maybe explain your steps below in more detail? Or even point out
what I would need to change in the attached program?
It makes sense to try to load the Eyeon Script enviroment (which is what I
tried by renaming the files) but I don't know how to do it :).

Thank you very much for your help

If this is the same thing as Eyeon Script that ships with Fusion 5
then here is what I would say:

1) Make sure that your loading the proper lua environment.
2) Make sure that your either requiring the Eyeon Script environment, or
loading it after you load Lua.
3) In the case of 2 make sure that you have linked the Eyeon Script
environment with your script instances.
4) Since you paid for the product, contact their customer support and ask
them whats wrong :)
