This is interesting. So you had a working association with Lua (which
wasn't a requirement of the package). tekUI's class library is located
under tek/ui/ , which I supposed couldn't be found by examples in a
samples directory branching off from the root. So having lua.exe in the
package root provided an anchor for finding the required DLLs and
classes, at least that was the plan. Being a Windows illerate, I don't
quite understand how the OS was able to pick the correct path for the
DLLs and classes, but good to know that it did. :-)

This is a problem deeply situated in the notification system of popups,
and difficult to fix without breaking something else (menus and popups
under Windows don't work yet when entered while the left mouse button
is held, while on the other platforms they do). This issue is high on
our list for the beta release.
