Hi. I have the same problem, but i'm running Pyhton 2.6.1. I'm using
Windows Vista 32bit SP1.

I installed Python to C:\Program Files\Python\2.6\ and when I try to run
idle from the start menu, it doesn't work.

When I try to run it from the command line, the same error is displayed:

"C:\Program Files\Python\2.6\Lib\idlelib>python
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "", line 21, in <module>
  File "C:\Programas\Python\2.6\lib\idlelib\", line 1386, in main
    root = Tk(className="Idle")
  File "C:\Programas\Python\2.6\lib\lib-tk\", line 1643, in
__init__ = _tkinter.create(screenName, baseName, className,
interactive, want
objects, useTk, sync, use)
_tkinter.TclError: Can't find a usable init.tcl in the following
C:/Programas/Python/2.6/lib/tcl8.5 C:/P
rogramas/Python/lib/tcl8.5 C:/Programas/lib/tcl8.5
C:/Programas/Python/library C
:/Programas/library C:/Programas/tcl8.5.2/library C:/tcl8.5.2/library

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