Problem installing UDP Package

Posted by terryoneal on 2010-10-08 07:18

I just upgraded my machine from WinXP to Win7. I then installed ActvieTCL 8.5.9 and attempted to use teacup to install the udp package. However, I get the following error:

Retrieving package udp 1.0.9 win32-x86_64 ...@
... Error:

        This operation needs a business edition license installed to
        succeed. Please visit to learn more about
        the ActiveTcl Business Edition offering.

        Unable to install the full list. Aborting.

This worked fine with my previous installation of 8.5.2 on WinXP - Did something change or is this a bug?

Hi Terry,

As the message indicated, you need a BE license to access the 64-bit Windows teapot repository. It looks like the one change is that you moved to using 64-bit ActiveTcl.

If you want to continue with the free and unsupported CE option, just download the 32-bit Windows ActiveTcl. This will run fine on a 64-bit Windows machine and the teapot repository is open to CE users.

Thanks Jeff, that worked.. I didn't realize there were limitations when moving to 64-bit.. I just figured I'd download the one that matched my machine..
