There are now new GUIs for tlmgr, viz. tlshell, which should work
out of the box, and tlcockpit, which requires Java.

The TL Perl distribution for windows has just been updated. It no
longer includes a Tk module, since both the installer and tlmgr have
new GUIs which do not require it. This is why `tlmgr.bat gui' no
longer works.

The error message is a bit odd. It suggests to me that tlmgr tries
and fails to load a left-behind Tk module from the previous perl
distribution, which should not be there anymore, but that is just
guess work from my part.
