I haven't run the installer on windows to see what happens, or if the
resulting install works.  But just running "setup.py install" and
then using the bwidget module works fine on my Linux system.

The tcl files are placed under prefix in a directory called
share/pybwidget, so for me, this creates

I would have guessed that this would create a folder like
on windows, assuming that sys.prefix is 'C:\\PYTHON23'.

tcl is told about the location of the files by this code in bwidget/__init__.py:
    _datadir = os.path.join(sys.prefix, "share", "pybwidget")
    class BWidget:
        def _require(self, master):
            auto_path = master.tk.call("set", "auto_path")
            if not _datadir in auto_path:
                master.tk.call("lappend", "auto_path", _datadir)
