Installing TCL/TK for Windows

About: I love everything from computers/gaming consoles to skateboarding and enjoying life. My goal is to create instructables that may benefit the user in anyway possible.

Tcl (Tool Command Language) is a dynamic programming/scripting language based on concepts of Lisp, C, and Unix shells. It can be used interactively, or by running scripts (programs) which can use a package system for structuring, hence allowing to do much with little code. Tcl is available for Linux, Windows, Mac OS X, as well as other platforms, as open-source software under BSD-like license, or as pre-built binaries. ~WikiBooks

First off i would like to say im still fairly new to programming in tcl/tk but this intructable will cover how to download and install Active Tcl on Windows. Also a thank you to larry03052 for introducing me to tcl/tk.
