Most likely.

My Miller's distribution of 0-49 runs with an "**\pd-0.49-0\lib\reg1.2\tclreg12.dll". I think (suspect) you changed files and you are using wish86.exe and tclsh86.exe.

If you don't have personal files or externals saved to "C:/Program Files/Pd" or subfolders you can wipe everything and reinstall.

1) Go to "control panel/programs and features" and uninstall Pd.

2) Since you mangled files probably the uninstaller cant do a complete job so go to "C:/Program Files/" and manualy delete the "Pd"


3) Do a fresh install of Pd-0.49.

Preferences won't get lost because the current and previous uninstaller is not programed yet to delete them.

Hope this helps.

I unistalled all the old win sdk and kept only the most recent one.
Could it be related?
