    Upgrade to the latest 2.7 or even 3.3 if at all possible.

    On my Windows 2.7 installation, directory /Lib contains directory
    /lib-tk (which is added to the path). /lib-tk contains files
    and, among others. If you have, then I do not think you
    should get that specific message; if there were a problem finding
    tcl/tk, it should say something else. If you do not have that file, as
    it seems, then your installation is incomplete. So check your
    /Lib/lib-tk. If you do not know where it is

    import sys

    Portability note: In 3.x, /lib-tk was renamed /tkinter and removed from
    the path. was renamed to make the renamed
    /tkinter an importable package. So 'import Tkinter becomes 'import
    tkinter', while 'import ttk', etcetera, is now 'import tkinter.ttk',
    etcetera. 2to3 should make the fixes.
