in thread Tkx not installing properly

The available releases of ActiveTcl 8.6 Community Edition for Windows are all 64-bit, while DWIM Perl for Windows is 32-bit. So I think you're right that this issue is due to a bitness mismatch, and a 64-bit Perl distribution (e.g. Strawberry or ActivePerl) would be needed instead.

    correct
    BTW I experienced some another problem on Windows 7 with 32bit ActiveTcl, so it took me some effort but then I switched to http://www.bawt.tcl3d.org/download.html#tclbi which then solved all my problems, there are 32 and 64 bit versions, with lots of modules included

    I found this binary while searching in Tclers wiki at http://wiki.tcl-lang.org/page/BAWT, which is also recommended resource for seekers of perl/Tk wisdom :)

    Going to write about this to Jeff Hobbs, who should be aware of such problems in ActiveTCL

    regards, Vadim
