I'm trying to create a java app that registers our service via Bonjour.   When I run our app (built and run on Windows 7 64-bit), I get this error:


Exception in thread "main" java.lang.UnsatisfiedLinkError: no jdns_sd in java.library.path

          at java.lang.ClassLoader.loadLibrary(Unknown Source)

          at java.lang.Runtime.loadLibrary0(Unknown Source)

          at java.lang.System.loadLibrary(Unknown Source)

          at com.apple.dnssd.AppleDNSSD.<clinit>(DNSSD.java:567)

          at java.lang.Class.forName0(Native Method)

          at java.lang.Class.forName(Unknown Source)

          at com.apple.dnssd.DNSSD.<clinit>(DNSSD.java:503)


I'm using dnssd-107.5.jar to develop my Bonjour service.



These are other parameters in my runtime:

Anyone knows what's wrong?  I have bonjour installed and bonjour service is running.

    You should have "jdns_sd.dll" in your java library path.


    By default, the Bonjour install places the "jdns_sd.dll" in C:\Windows\system32 which is the default library path for every Java application.


    In your case, however, the java.library.path system property points to C:\dll\lib where may not contain "jdns_sd.dll".


    My suggestion is that you find out the reason why your Java app's java.library.path system property is changed this way and restore it to the default one that includes C:\Windows\system32 .
