Thanks a lot! The version stuff didn't work as-is, but I  probably didn't
have all the right #defines. Anyway, there's also an example in the TCL
source tree (win/tclsh.rc) that I looked at to do mine by analogy.
  A related question - when running a TCL script (or in my case a
standalone program built with a TCL GUI), is there a way to replace the
"Tk" icon in a window's upper-left corner with something else? The above
works for changing the icon in windows' explorer, but it doesn't seem to
affect the program's icon in the running window.
