Hi,

I just downloaded PyMOL (for Windows), which seems
very interesting.
I downloaded & installed Python21 successfully, but
not in the default directory.

When I launch pymol, it first says that it is guessing
TCL_LIBRARY= c:\python21\tcl\tcl8.3
which is false, because I did not install python there
Then, it complains that it could not find a usable
init.tcl, and it concludes that Tcl was not installed
properly.

What should I do?

Here is a copy of the end of the error message:

self.run()
File "c:\program files\dev\python21
\lib\threading.py", line 366, in run
apply(self.__target, self.__args, self.__kwargs)
File "C:\Program
Files\Dev\PyMOL/modules\pmg_tk\__init__.py", line 33,
in ru
n
PMGApp(balloon_state='both').run()
File "C:\Program
Files\Dev\PyMOL/modules\pmg_tk\AbstractApp.py", line
40, in
__init__
self.root = Tk()
File "c:\program files\dev\python21\lib\lib-
tk\Tkinter.py", line 1480, in __
init__
self.tk = _tkinter.create(screenName, baseName,
className)
TclError: Can't find a usable init.tcl in the
following directories:
{C:\python21\tcl\tcl8.3 (guessing)} {} {C:\python21
\tcl\tcl8.3 (guessing)}
C:/python21/tcl/tcl8.3 {C:/PROGRAM
FILES/DEV/PYTHON21/lib/tcl8.3} {C:/PROGRAM
FILES/DEV/lib/tcl8.3} {C:/PROGRAM FILES/lib/tcl8.3}
{C:/PROGRAM FILES/lib/tcl8.
3/library} {C:/PROGRAM FILES/library} {C:/PROGRAM
FILES/../tcl8.3/library} C:/.
./tcl8.3/library

This probably means that Tcl wasn't installed properly.

    This is a bug -- PyMOL should be able to locate this
    information from the Windows registry. Please provide your
    operating system and PyMOL information so that we can
    figure out why this is happening...

    Thanks,
    Warren
