1) You appear to be working on Windows, but failed to say so.

2) Your first question is answered in both the rw-FAQ *and* the README, so
I presume you have not read them (although you quote a non-existent
`Win-FAQ').  Please do so, completely and carefully.

3) Your second question is covered by the demos in package tcltk (and that
is covered in the documentation mentioned above).
