The problem is clear enough: you are trying to use labltk with a
camltk program.
LablTk and CamlTk are two different libraries, but they share the same
module names, since LablTk is a dervative from CamlTk.
LablTk is included in the OCaml distribution, but CamlTk has to be
downloaded independently.
Both libraries have basically the same functionality, but they adopt a
different style: in CamlTk options are passed as lists of
constructors, while in LablTk optional arguments are used.

A few examples for LablTk are available, but infortunately they are
not included in the binary distribution for Windows. You have to get
the source distribution, and look in otherlibs/labltk/example.

On the other hand, if you want to use CamlTk, you must first compile
and install it.
