Ask the person you've got the file from.

There seems to be some copies of tcilatex.tex on google. No promises they are the one you want, however.

Apparently, it's a macro collection.

I think the person who created the file is using Scientific WorkPlace or Scientific Word. Depending on what the file contains, you may be able to compile the it by simply removing the tcilatex command. If this does not work ask the creator to save the file as a Portable Latex File and send you a copy.

If all this fails and the file is not too big, you can post it and I can try to fix it for you.

best thing to do is to ask the person using Scientific Workplace to save the Document as Portable LaTeX, it is in the dropdown under the file name when use uses the 'Save as' feature.

This will remove the tcilatex from the document.

ticlatex is only found in Scientific Workplace and the firm for some reason does not share their stuff with the rest of us.
