Windows 10 and 2020 64-bit Python issue with Tcl

After installing latest Intel Python 64-bit on Windows 10 1909, I get:

=================
Z:\>cd vulnerability/sahgit/python3/automateelden

Z:\Vulnerability\SAHGIT\Python3\AutomateElden>python ve.py
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "ve.py", line 336, in <module>
    VirtualElden()
  File "ve.py", line 255, in VirtualElden
    root = tk.Tk()
  File "C:\IntelPython3\lib\tkinter\__init__.py", line 2023, in __init__
    self.tk = _tkinter.create(screenName, baseName, className, interactive, wantobjects, useTk, sync, use)
_tkinter.TclError: Can't find a usable init.tcl in the following directories:
    {C:\IntelPython3\tcl\tcl8.6}

C:/IntelPython3/tcl/tcl8.6/init.tcl: version conflict for package "Tcl": have 8.6.4, need exactly 8.6.9
version conflict for package "Tcl": have 8.6.4, need exactly 8.6.9
    while executing


"package require -exact Tcl 8.6.9"
    (file "C:/IntelPython3/tcl/tcl8.6/init.tcl" line 19)


    invoked from within
"source C:/IntelPython3/tcl/tcl8.6/init.tcl"
    ("uplevel" body line 1)
    invoked from within
"uplevel #0 [list source $tclfile]"
This probably means that Tcl wasn't installed properly.
Z:\Vulnerability\SAHGIT\Python3\AutomateElden>
==============

How do I install Tcl 8.6.9 -- or is this a typo in the init file? ('4' looks a little bit like '9'??)  Or can I change the "Requires exactly" to 8.6.4?

Hi,

Thank you for reaching us.

Could you provide the source and steps followed for installing Intel Python?

The below is the url to download and install Intel Python:

https://software.seek.intel.com/python-distribution

In that choose windows version and use exe file to install it.

Got email for  new release, clicked link to download for Windows, which took me to: https://registrationcenter.intel.com/en/products/download/?ProductID=3655&EmailID=steve.holton%40das.ohio.gov&Sequence=2002642&DefaultBld=n, which downloaded w_pythoni3_p_2020.0.014.zip (not an .exe).

After unzipping, I ran "C:\intelpython3\setup_intel_python.bat", which did a bunch of Robocopying, etc..  The I re-booted

Attempting to use Python script that uses Tkinter (which worked before the update), got the above error.

Hi,

Please change the version like given below and try it:

Step 1: open C:/IntelPython3/tcl/tcl8.6/init.tcl

if {[info commands package] == ""} {

    error "version mismatch: library\nscripts expect Tcl version 7.5b1 or later but the loaded version is\nonly [info patchlevel]"

}

package require -exact Tcl 8.6.9 (change 8.6.4 to 8.6.9)

Step 2:  open C:/IntelPython3/tcl/tk8.6/tk.tcl

package require -exact Tk 8.6.9 (change 8.6.4 to 8.6.9)

Both were already 8.6.9, and the error message persists.

 

My interpretation of the error message is that 

1. The software REQUIRES 8.6.9

2. It finds instead 8.6.4, which does not meet the 8.6.9 requirement

How can I install 8.6.9 on Windows 10? Or should I change both of the 8.6.9 entries to 8.6.4?  (which version of Tcl/TK is installed in the distro?  How can I query TCL/TK version?

Hi,

When i installed i got the default version as 8.6.9 and i also got the same error as yours, then i changed both the 8.6.9 entries to 8.6.4 and the issue got resolved.

To check TCL/TK version use below command:

1. Goto python shell

C:\w_pythoni3_p_2020.0.014\intelpython3>python

2. now  import tkinter

>>> import tkinter

3. check the TCL/TK version using below command:

>>> tkinter.Tcl().eval('info patchlevel')

Then i got 8.6.4 as output after changing the version.

Seems to be working OK now, EXCEPT pylint  (running inside of VS Code) is flagging assignments in the APP class file. I'm new to TK, so maybe

this is an error (although it runse fine...). But I don't see what's wrong (I need to be able to access the fields in the Python script,  so nee do assign

them to a variable that can be referenced, which seems to work even though Pylint insists that these functions don't return a value...) Sample attached

I thought that I did attach a screen shot - but have attached another (annotated) one here. Actually, 2 shots.  Shot 1 shows the Pylint "errors", shot 2 I hovered over one of the errors to get a description of the problem. These are both VS Code screen shots..

P.S.  The code runs, so Python allows the assignments to occur - pylint complains needlessly?

Hi,

Thanks for sharing the screenshots. Looks like the issue is related to your script and not related to any of the computational package. We would like to inform you that this is out of our support scope. However you can post this as new thread in our forum so that the public community may help.

Since your  initial query regarding  TCL/TK version is resolved. Can we close this case?
