[R] tcltk library

R version 1.2
OS Window NT 4.0 Service Pack 6.0

I downloaded tcl.tck 8.3.2 from http://www.scriptics.com  I also set the
TCL_LIBRARY variable in my environment.

However when I try to load the tcltk library in R this is what happens:-

> library(tcltk)
Error in firstlib(which.lib.loc, package) :
        Can't find a usable init.tcl in the following directories:
    {"F:/Program Files/Tcl/lib/tcl8.3"} {}

This probably means that Tcl wasn't installed properly.
Error in library(tcltk) : .First.lib failed

Why is this happening?  I also tried setting TCL_LIBRARY to the top level
directory, i.e F:/Program Files/Tcl   but R still cannot seem to load this
library.  The file init.tcl is present in
F:/Program Files/Tcl/lib/tcl8.3.
Can someone shed some light on this?

Thanks in advance
