'compound' option is supported by Tcl/Tk8.4 or later. 
The version of Tcl/Tk libraries on one-click installer is 8.3.
So, you have to install Tcl/Tk8.4 or 8.5 and replace tcltklib.dll 
which uses the libraries of Tcl/Tk8.4 or 8.5.
Or, pack an image label and a text label on the button, 
and define event callbacks for both of the labels (e.g. change 
option values of the labels and send the event to the button).
