Installation requirements and instructions
The current version of the TWAPI extension supports Windows 2000, Windows XP and Windows 2003. TWAPI also requires Tcl 8.4 or higher. It will not load on older versions of Tcl.
The distribution comes in three forms: a ZIP archive ("twapi-VERSION.zip"), a single file Tcl module ("twapi-VERSION.tm") for Tcl 8.5 and above, and a Starkit ("twapi-VERSION.kit").
To install the ZIP distribution, unzip it into a directory and add the location of the twapi distribution directory to your Tcl auto_path variable.
The Tcl module distribution can be used with Tcl 8.5 or later. To install it, copy it into one of the directories returned by Tcl's ::tcl::tm::path list command.
The TWAPI Starkit distribution is self-contained except for the documentation. To use this distribution, simply use the Tcl source command to read it into your Tcl interpreter.
Some factors to consider in choosing the distribution:
Once installed, TWAPI can be loaded using the command package require twapi. Note that with the Starkit distribution, you still need to source the file before invoking this command.
