This is a path-setting bug, as far as I can tell.  Under the My Computer
Properties tab in Windows, change the system's PATH to include the directory
containing the Tcl library (usually c:\program files\tcl\bin).

The other option is to copy the tcl80.dll (?) file from that directory into
the system32 directory.  That way you needn't alter the system PATH but you
will have a rogue file in your system directory!

Hope that helps,
