Failed to load the JNI shared library

Failed to load the JNI shared library


i just completed installing the Beacon Mountain program but a "Failed to load the JNI shared library" popped up.

i am pretty sure i have installed the correct java: 

jdk-7u21-windows-x64.exe   for my window x64, so i am not sure what the problem is.

I'm assuming that you also installed a 32bit version of Java and the 32bit version comes first in the path. In order to solve this issue you can explicitely point to the 64Bit version of the JDK:

Edit the eclipse.ini file in c:\intel\BeaconMountain\ADT\eclipse.
Add the parameter vm which points to your 64 bit java installation (you might need to adjust the path):  

C:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.7.0_01\bin\javaw.exe

The position of the parameter is important. It needs to be placed between the parameters showsplash and launcher.XXMaxPermSize

My complete eclipse.ini file:

C:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.7.0_01\bin\javaw.exe

Hope this helps!
