Installing ActiveTcl for Windows


  • 35 MB for the final install
  • Windows 2003 or later

ActiveTcl is distributed on Windows as an executable installer (.exe file).

  1. Download the ActiveTcl AS Package for Windows (ActiveTcl-<version>-<platform>.exe).
  2. Double-click the installer file to extract the contents and run the installation.
    • Note that since Windows Vista it is strongly recommended to start the installer via a right-click and “run as Administrator” from the context menu this pops up.
    • Note further that it is necessary to save the installer to the local disk before running it, contrary to any objections made by recent versions of Internet Explorer. The installer cannot be run from IE.
