Does anyone know why this happens? I can't find any information pointing to
this being deliberate.
I just upgraded to 2.5 on Windows (after making sure I can build extensions
with the freeware VC++ Toolkit 2003) and some of my programs stopped
operating. I saw in a French forum that someone else had the same problem,
and what they did was to copy the relevant files from a 2.4.3 installation.
I did the same, and it seems it works, with only a console message appearing
as soon as a root window is created:
attempt to provide package Tix 8.1 failed: package Tix 22.214.171.124 provided
