Igor, thanks for the hint. On another one -- I am using a windows
thread to load my content I am about to render as loading / parsing
can take quite a while.
Now the issue is that my Script Engine gets initialized (Set status to
connect) within this thread. When doing so, all my JScript functions
are no longer doing anything (getting E_UNEXPECTED) but if I load
without the thread but in my main app's thread everything works fine.
Any idea what's going wrong there?

Script engines are both-threaded. This means the engine can be created
on either STA or MTA thread, but once you create it, you have to stick
to the chosen threading model (in case of STA, it means no calls from
any other threads). The only exceptions are
IActiveScript::InterruptScriptThread and IActiveScript::Clone, which may
be called from any thread.

Perhaps you can create and load the script on a worker thread, then
Clone it on main UI thread. I don't know if this would actually help
With best wishes,
    Igor Tandetnik

With sufficient thrust, pigs fly just fine. However, this is not
necessarily a good idea. It is hard to be sure where they are going to
land, and it could be dangerous sitting under them as they fly
overhead. -- RFC 1925
