Where did you find that information about Tcl no longer supporting 32-bits Windows?
ActiveTcl 8.6.1 comes in two flavours for Windows for instance: 32-bits and 64-bits.
Or is this something specific to MinGW/MSYS?

I have been able to build the Tk bindings and related drivers under Cygwin. Since there is
a X11 Window server and window manager for that platform, I could run the examples
on my Windows laptop.
