    The installer extract, executes, and deletes the gtk-runtime.exe, but then halts and says "Error installing gtk+ runtime."

    I've never had this happen to me before.  I think what may be conflicting has something to do with installing ActiveTCL, which asked if I wanted to change file extensions for registry files I think.  I had no idea what I was doing.  I'd installed Xchat2 from the following site and it suggested installing ActiveTCL.

    Is there a log file I can view to see exactly what happened during the install?  Is there anyone who can give me suggestions?

    Thanks~

      I forgot to specify the OS.  I'm using Windows XP Pro.

      Any suggestions at all would be much appreciated.  I hope I didn't leave out any crucial details.
