Now it is working great with the mc.SignalSetState method per Daz assigning an unused input to the LED such as input63 as he suggested.
For those trying trying to use this, note the change to ISIG_INPUT from OSIG_OUTPUT ( 1=on 0=off)  This code is in my PLC script.
As Daz suggested, I tried but do not have a ~ sign on my keyboard so stuck with >=.1 instead of ~= 0.  It works better because there is noise below .1v

  if tonumber(regval) >.1 then
        mc.mcSignalSetState (mc.mcSignalGetHandle ( inst ,mc.ISIG_INPUT63  ), 1)
    else
        mc.mcSignalSetState (mc.mcSignalGetHandle ( inst,mc.ISIG_INPUT63  ), 0)
    end
    --

I could not get reliable function with the scr.SetProperty method.  Sometimes it would work and sometimes it would switch to off and stay off.

If youneed a ~ try the holding the  alt key and then type in 126. Should give you a Tilde(~) once you let go.

We never have the time or money to do it right the first time, but we somehow manage to do it twice and then spend the money to get it right.

Thanks Mike but it works! ~~~ but I had to use the num pad.  It does not work using the number keys across the top of the keyboard though.

Glad it works. IIRC there is a number for every symbol that you would every need.
I always use the number pad.I just tried it the other way and it doesn't work here either.
