Error with Plink

Hello. I have a TCL script that logs in to a server using SSH. As SSH isn't available in windows,I used Plink to do the job.The script works fine on my PC and 2 of my friend's PC.
However, on one PC, I get the following error message:

"'D:\scripts\plink.exe' is not a Win32 Console application."

All the aforementioned machines run Windows XP(32 bit),including the one displaying the error.
plink.exe is present in the directory d:\scripts\. This has been added to the Path variable(in environment varaibles). Also, when I try the plink command in command prompt (plink some_ip_address) I am able to login successfully. Please tell me how to resolve the problem. thanks in advance.
