Hi there, I'm about to try my first toolkit tutorial, with tk. So, to
that I had it installed I wrote:

require "tk"

in my rb file, but I get an error loading tk84.dll.
How do I fix this?

I downloaded the ActiveTcl and installed it. Now i have a differnt

c:/ruby/lib/ruby/1.8/tk.rb:1102:in `initialize': tcltklib: fail to
Tk_Init(). version conflict for package "Tcl": have 8.4, need 8.3
	from c:/ruby/lib/ruby/1.8/tk.rb:1102
	from c:/ruby/lib/ruby/site_ruby/1.8/rubygems/custom_require.rb:21:in
	from gmailer.rb:1

I miss the one click installer :( can we get a version with TK? Was
there a reason it was removed?

Interesting. I also installed Ruby from the latest version of the one
click installer, downloaded ActiveTcl for Windows and installed it.
Ruby is working fine with Tk for me. Sorry I can't be of more help.
