I run Python 2.5.2 (r252:60911, Feb 21 2008, 13:11:45) on Windows Vista
Home Premium.
IDLE won't start if not installed in the default directory.
When insalled in a custom directory, running
(\Lib\idlelib\ produces this error:

"Traceback (most recent call last):
File "C:\Programmer\Python\lib\idlelib\", line 21, in <module>
File "C:\Programmer\Python\lib\idlelib\", line 1390, in main
root= Tk(className="Idle")
File "C:\Programmer\Python\lib\idlelib\", line 1636, in
__init__ = _tkinter.create(screenName, baseName, className,
interactive, wantobjects, useTk, sync, use)
_tkinter.TclError: Can't find a usable init.tcl in the following
directories: {C:\Programmer\Python\tcl\tcl8.4}

C:/Programmer/Python/lib/tcl8.4 C:/Programmer/Python/lib/tcl8.4
C:/lib/tcl8.4 C:/library C:/tcl8.4/library

This probable means that Tcl wasn't installed properly."
