After removing my Ruby installation, I got the following:

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "C:\lang\Python25\Lib\idlelib\idle.py", line 21, in <module>
  File "C:\lang\Python25\lib\idlelib\PyShell.py", line 1390, in main
    root = Tk(className="Idle")
  File "C:\lang\Python25\lib\lib-tk\Tkinter.py", line 1636, in __init__
    self.tk = _tkinter.create(screenName, baseName, className, interactive,
wantobjects, useTk, sync, use)
_tkinter.TclError: Can't find a usable init.tcl in the following
    {c:\ruby\tcl\lib\tcl8.3} {c:\ruby\tcl\lib\tcl8.3} c:/ruby/tcl/lib/tcl8.4
C:/lang/Python25/lib/tcl8.4 C:/lang/lib/tcl8.4 C:/lib/tcl8.4 C:/lang/library
C:/library C:/tcl8.4.12/library

This probably means that Tcl wasn't installed properly.

The tcl was installed as part of the distribution in the .msi file, how
could it not be installed properly?
