You can fix the "Edit" problem as follows:
In TkEclipse, go to Tools->Preference Editor
and change the field "Text editor to use" from e.g.
    C:\Program Files\Windows NT\Accessories\wordpad.exe
    "C:\\Program Files\\Windows NT\\Accessories\\wordpad.exe"
i.e. add quotes and double the backslashes.

The "Compile" function from the main menu has the known bug
that the _first_ file that appears in the browser cannot be
opened by double-clicking, you have to select it and click
"open" (this seems to be a bug in Tcl/Tk, the GUI tool we use).
