I am having similar problems with Ruby and Tk, I installed Tcl (which
appeared to be successful), and it still is not working. I receive
several errors. I even attempted to copy the tk84.dll into the Ruby/
bin folder as I had seen suggested somewhere else, but that didn't
work either. Any other suggestions?

This is what I am getting...

C:\ruby>canvas.rb
c:/ruby/lib/ruby/1.8/tk.rb:1102:in `initialize': Can't find a usable
init.tcl in
 the following directories:  (RuntimeError)
    c:/ruby/lib/tcl8.4 c:/ruby/lib/tcl8.4 c:/lib/tcl8.4 c:/ruby/
library c:/library c:/tcl8.4.15/library



This probably means that Tcl wasn't installed properly.
