anyone familiar with extending the minimalistic embedded python distribution on windows?

I want to use the pysimplegui and was able to successfully let the interpreter load the module by adding it to the zip archive inside the interpreter's directory.

The problem is that it requires the tkinter package which is already included in the default python installation but not in the embedded version.

How do I add tkinter? It seems that there is no downloadable library available for this package. If possible I don't want to compile python from scratch nor do I want to use additional package managers like pip.

There should be instructions included in the PySimpleGUI documentation on how to install tkinter if it's not already installed.
