11.1 AccelDSP - When I launch AccelDSP, why do I receive "Error: Could not load the syntax highlighting File.invalid command name "AppInfo::Appinfo" while executing "Appinfo::Appinfo ProductDir"?

Description

When I launch AccelDSP, why do I receive the following error:

"Error: Could not load the syntax highlighting File.invalid command name "AppInfo::Appinfo" while executing "Appinfo::Appinfo ProductDir"

Solution

This error can be caused by having the environment variable TCL_LIBRARY set and pointing to another tool such as IBM Python:

TCL_LIBRARY = C:\IBMTOOLS\Python22\tcl\tcl8.4

The AccelDSP initialization routine is a TCL routine, and if this environment variable is set, it can interfere with the startup process.

To work around this issue, unset the environment variable TCL_LIBRARY, or call it a different name.
