How do I use Tkinter with Python on Windows Vista?


I installed Python 2.6 for one user on Windows Vista. Python works okay, but when I try: import Tkinter, it says the side-by-side configuration has errors. I've tried tinkering with the Visual Studio runtime, with no good results. Any ideas on how to resolve this?


python 2.6.2 + tkinter 8.5, no problems

It seems this is a one of the many weird Vista problems and some random reinstalling, installing/upgrading of the visual studio runtime or some such seems sometimes to help, or disabling sxs in the system configuration or writing a manifest file etc.

Though I think you should downgrade to windows XP.

Maybe you should downgrade to 2.5 version?
