Unable to import object into Dynamo python (but using Ipy console works)

Hi all,
Bit of a weird one here. I’m trying to hook into the running instance of a program called ETABS. I’m able to do so without any issues when I run IronPython alone from its console. But the same code running from within Dynamo refuses to get the object (see attached pic - the ETABS node’s output is the csiApp variable which is reported as null)

The code I’m running is exactly the same between the two so not sure what’s happening behind the scenes. I’m using Dynamo 2.0.2.
Thoughts ?
