I don't know how it's spelled in 3.4.x, but in 2.7 it's spelled "Tkinter".
Give that a try. (Sorry, no 3.4 install handy or I'd verify it myself.)

The other alternative is that the tkinter module wasn't built when you
installed Python because the build system couldn't find Tcl or Tk libraries
to link to. If that's the case, let us know your computing platform
(Windows, Linux/Unix, MacOSX) and how 3.4 was installed on your system.

Adding python-list back into the CC list. I know nothing about Windows.
Perhaps someone else here can help. (Sorry about the top post all you
bottom post mavens. It seemed warranted in this case...)

hi,
thank you so much for the quick reply!!!! :-D
i run win7 home premium...
during the installation of python 3.4.2 i have seen the tcl/tk option
activated!
the change between the T and t i tried but still the module wasnt found...
... ... ...
its strange... you know... i dealed with C, C++, and many other
programming languages and it was ALWAYS the same... never it was easy and
always there was a problem with the instalation or the editor... even
buying a book never it was like described in the book and i got stuck at a
point where the example in the book and the software didnt match... so that
happening noow isnt something new to me...
another question that you might be able to help me is if you can recommend
me a simple editor for writing python programs... right now i took IEP...
any tips?
be well and thank you!
GD
p.s. i only installed 3.4.2... thats enough right? or do i have to install
the 2.X version as well?

Then python -m tkinter in Command Prompt should bring up a tk windows
with a bit a text and two buttons, one for exit. First try to find
Python 3.4 on the Start menu and start Python 3.4 (command .... Then
try import sys, then import tkinter. If this does not work, try
re-installing.

If you respond, do so to the list, not me.
