When I try to run the appletviewer in DOS or try to
run the JWS(Java Workshop) under Windows 95, it dumps a stack and
gives me the following messages. Could anybody help me to
solve these problems, please?
If I run appletviewer:
This program has performed an illegal operation
and will be shut down.
[no properties loaded, using defaults]
Unable to load dll 'awt.dll' (errcode = 45a)
java.lang.UnsatisfiedLinkError: no awt in shared library path
Windows popup message:
if the problem persists, contact the program
APPLETVIEWER caused an invalid page fault in
module KERNEL32.DLL at 0137:bff9a07c.
Here is my autoexec.bat file
REM unrelated stuff omitted
While most Java configuration problems seem to center around the class path, your problem is that Appletviewer cannot load the AWT shared library. If you install the JDK in C:\JAVA, then the AWT.DLL file is located in C:\JAVA\BIN. That directory must be on the PATH.
Whenever you get an "unable to load ???.dll" message, (1) ensure that the DLL is there and (2) that its directory is on the PATH. (In UNIX, there are separate paths for programs and for libraries, but in DOS/Windows, the same path is used to search both.) There is a third possibility that actually happened to me a couple of times, that a different version of the DLL was elsewhere on the path.
Hope that helps.
