Hysplit won't run Windows 7

Post by AraZeph »

I have tried installing Hysplit a few times on my pc but when I try to run it the window flashes and then closes immediately. I installed the supporting programs first.

I'm wondering if it is an unsupported release of Tcl/tk? The earliest I could get was 8.5.18.0 but the Hysplit site says the latest tested was 8.5.11.1. Would this be a problem? Could it be something else? All the supporting programs open and run individually.

That is strange. You should be able to choose the tcl/tk software to open that application.
