Fix 'wish.exe' cannot be found while running TkInter's GUI builder (PAGE)

This guide will show you how to fix 'wish.exe' cannot be found while running page gui builder for python on windows OS.

When you download PAGE and installed it on windows, you will get this error "Windows cannot find 'wish.exe'. Make sure you typed the name correctly, and then try again.".

This is because PAGE (the Python Automatic GUI Generator) requires Tcl/Tk ActiveTcl package. Tcl/Tk is required for executing PAGE. Tcl/Tk is required because PAGE is written in Tcl/Tk.

The solution
Head over to ActiveTcl page, download and install a copy for your windows OS.

You may be promted to register on the website before you download it, just follow the prompts and download a copy of ActiveTcl. Then run it as usual to install it.

With this out of the way, your PAGE TkInter GUI Generator software should lunch correctly as seen below.
