Thanks for the report James.

We presently don't support GCL-Tk on Windows.

Although I had hoped to get it up I have so far been unable to find the time to do so and there are substantially more pressing problems ahead for Windows GCL development over the next few months.

Any programming help in this regard would of course be most appreciated!

I would like to have a Tk GUI on my GCL program.

gcltksrv.exe seems to be missing from the Windows binary
package.  Shouldn't it automatically run?

An earlier version of GCL (2.6.1) complained about
gcltksrv being missing.  The current version complains
about "|tkl|".

I have ActiveState installed.
