I was in hell too when I try to did the same back a year ago. I don't
remember how I finally solved the problem (So some steps might be
missing). But it's a start:
1) Check environment variable PATH, TCL_LIBRARY, TK_LIBRARY:
2) Copy tcl83.dll and tk83.dll into c:\python21\DLLs
This should work for python 2.1 and PWM and BLT.

There are three schools of magic. One: State a tautology, then ring
the changes on its corollaries; that's philosophy. Two: Record many
facts. Try to find a pattern. Then make a wrong guess at the next
fact; that's science. Three: Be aware that you live in a malevolent
Universe controlled by Murphy's Law, sometimes offset by Brewster's
Factor; that's engineering.
So far as I can remember, there is not one word in the Gospels in
praise of intelligence.
