I don't know much about the win32-api, but SetCursorPos sounds like a 
text-console command, not like something that has to do with windows. 
Funtions that operate on a window take a HWND (window handle), but this 
function doesn't, so this certainly sounds like text-console.

Now, why are you trying to position the cursor in a Tk Window anyway? The 
Tk-Window is no text console, it's just a plain window on the screen, and you 
can draw in the window using the normal Tk drawing primitives.

Maybe, if you post some more info on what you're trying to do, can we help you
