[eclipse-users] tkeclipse doesn't run

Hi folks,
FWIW, I have the same problems. I get the same responses if I try
the command-line commands below.
This may be an unrelated second problem, but I've noted that .tcl
scripts are not "tied" to the Tcl interpreter (i.e. in the Start
menu, under Programs->Tcl, there is e.g. "Widget Tour". The icon
is the Notepad text file icon. Indeed, if I click it, I get the
.tcl file open in Notepad vs. running via Wish. I have to start
Wish as noted previously in this thread and "source" the file
Now, when I do that, I do get a small window with the ECLiPSe icon
in it, with four menus (File, Query, Tools, and Help). In the
original Tk Console window, I get:
% Problem loading the ECLiPSe shared libraries: couldn't load
library ".\tkeclipse.dll": this library or a dependent library
could not be found in library path
I also tried the uninstall/reinstall, but unfortunately I am
not enough of a Tcl expert to diagnose the problem. I hope to
use the command line version for now, to get started.
seems to imply that Tcl/Tk 8.3 is required, therefore I have
not bothered to try with e.g. ActiveTcl.
