Yes. In Python V.3.5, I simply had the declaration:

from tkinter import *

and thereafter I could use in code lines e.g.:

messagebox.showerror(........)

However, in Python V.3.6.1, I have to have the declaration:

from tkinter import *
import tkinter.messagebox

and thereafter have to use:

tkinter.messagebox.showerror(........)
