i have an applet code which uses dll file.
when i run the applet in the client, it should download a file from the server and store in a dir called sip in the c:\
( if the dir is not present, it should create a dir named sip ----- so it will have c:\sip )

all the above said is working fine.
now i have to set c:\sip as the java. library.path for the client machine.

so i used the following lines in my code

but it did not work,
it is showing the following error message

what should i do..

any suggestions please..

thanks in advance

hi all,

i found the solution

i removed

as the error shows line 67 in, ( it was where i call another class which has the name of the actual dll).
was in line 225, instead of this i replaced it with the line 67( i cut and paste here in line 225)

it solved the problem.

thank you

Applets can't change client-side JVM settings; those are established once when the browser JVM starts, but can't be changed after the fact. My advice to you remains this one. I suspect you'd be done with the problem by now if you had implemented that.
