I am running my JAR from a BAT file on Windows 7 x64 machine. Lately I added native .dll files to project, so now I need to add the path to the BAT. My project is exported to “C:/dist” and folder with native libs called “natives” placed alongside, that is “C:/dist/natives”.
The problem is that for some reason the path is ignored, or cannot be found, or it seems something else is wrong in the BAT. This is my BAT code:
@ECHO OFF java -XX:+UseG1GC -Xmx1G -server -Djava.library.path="C:/dist/natives" -jar data.jar @if %errorlevel% neq 0 pause
When I run my project from the NetBeansIDE all works fine as expected. It is only when I try to run the compiled file from the BAT file it seems it cannot find the native libs when they are needed ending up with error.
I also tried add the path to the native libs programaticaly like this:
//PROGRAMATICALLY SET THE PATH TO NATIVE LIBRARIES System.setProperty("java.library.path", "natives"); Field fieldSysPath = ClassLoader.class.getDeclaredField("sys_paths"); fieldSysPath.setAccessible(true); fieldSysPath.set(null, null);
It works as it should in NetBeansIDE but not once the jar is compiled and run via BAT file.
This might have the same problem I mentioned at the beginning of this post of mine, namely one of these:
- unnecessary jar files in your project (they might cause problems similar to yours)
- mixing different versions of LWJGL jar files (might cause problems similar to yours)
- mixing different versions of LWJGL native .dll files (might cause problems similar to yours)
- using unneeded native .dll files (sometime unnecessary ones may cause errors like yours)
