How to run autoexpect on Windows?

Specs: Windows XP SP3, 2Gb
Hello,
I have a simple task i.e. run autoexpect program to automate telnet. I was able to do it on my Solaris box but I am stuck on my Windows XP box.
Here's what I did:
1. downloaded expect-5.43.tar to my local drive, untar it and have Expect located at C:\.... . I tried to execute 'autoexpect' but it says: "'autoexpect' is not recognized as an internal or external command"
2. I installed ActiveTcl 8.5.9. Successfully ran 'teacup install Expect'.
3. Here I'm blocked: how now I could execute autoexpect program?

thanks in advance

expect-5.43.tar
Tar balls aren't often associated with Windows. Make sure you have a Windows binary in that download of yours.

Well ... I realized that I played with the unix version of Expect. So I downloaded windows version of Tcl, then ran 'teacup install Expect'.
Now I have expect package downloaded on my Windows system and I have expect.tcl.
Still my goal is to run autoexpect !
Could someone tell me if it's possible to run autoexpect under Windows and if it is how to do it.
Thanks

Look in the directory to which you un-tarred/installed.

Is there an autoexpect.exe in there?
