Tkabber 0.9.8 plugins

Thanks for your reply. As per your suggestion, I have downloaded source and plugins from http://tkabber.jabber.ru/node/235.
I unpacked source files to "G:\Bappy\Jobs\tkabber\tkabber-0.9.8" and then put plugins to "G:\Bappy\Jobs\tkabber\tkabber-0.9.8\plugins" folder i.e. whiteboard plugin was placed in "G:\Bappy\Jobs\tkabber\tkabber-0.9.8\plugins\whiteboard" folder.
I am using Windows 2000 professional and i have Active TCL installed, so i don't need to compile anything. Just double clicking on tkabber.tcl lunches the program.
Everything is working fine but none of the plugin works. I have also downloaded star pack for windows from the same page mentioned previously. It works fine with all plugins.

1) Am I placing the plugins in wrong folder?
2) Is there any other requirement other than Active TCL?

Pls. help me.

Pluging have to be put into

Pluging have to be put into .tkabber/plugins subdirectory of your home directory.

If you don't know where home directory is (which is typical for Windows user), start tclsh and run the following command

file normalize ~

Home directory in Windows

Thanks a lot. It is now working. It should be documented clearly which is Home directory in case of windows user, because windows doesn't use a concept of Home directory. So windows users should not know this.
In my case Home directory is "C:\Documents and Settings\Administrator" i.e. on WinXP or 2000 it is normally "C:\Documents and Settings\username", if C: is windows installation drive.

Thanks a lot again. I had to spent a lot of time for this silly mistake.
