Hello, I have to load a DLL which is bundled in a JAR. If I do not include them in a JAR, I can load the DLL with System.load(thePath). This works fine. Now to load it from a JAR i do this: // Get current classloader ClassLoader cl = this.getClass().getClassLoader();
// Create path String lsFile = new String((cl.getResource("STDCExcel.dll")).getPath()); // load DLL System.load(lsFile); The System.load gives me a unsatisfiedlinkError, the lsPath variable contains: file:/C:/JRE/1.3.1/lib/ext/office.jar!/STDCExcel.dll The Office.jar is infact the correct JAR which contains the DLL. What's wrong ?? thnx
