I also have the same problem.  I then tried to run the PMW tests under
2.0 and gots lots of small errors tried again
under my "working" 1.5.2 installation.   It ALSO reports lots of small
errors but DOES display the graph examples also.

I am assuming that this is just an installation issue with the
locations of tcl.  Under 1.5.2, the Windoze installation had tcl under
"Program FIles" with BLT installed in that hierarchy.  Under 2.0, tcl
is in a directory under python20 but the depth of the heirarchy
appears to be different.

Any clues??
