How to resolve this JNI error when trying to run LWJGL "Hello World"?

I'm trying to run the sample "Hello World" from the LWJGL website

From this link: LWJGL "Getting Started"

I'm trying to do this via the command line, just so I understand the "behind the scenes" a bit better.

I've managed to compile without any errors, but when I try to run the program I'm getting this error:

C:\JavaProjects\LearningLWJGL>java -classpath .;./lib/*.jar -Djava.library.path=C:\Windows\System32 HelloWorld
Error: A JNI error has occurred, please check your installation and try again

Any ideas?

Answer

A CLASSPATH entry is either a directory at the head of a package hierarchy of .class files, or a .jar file. If you're expecting ./lib to include all the .jar files in that directory, it won't. You have to name them explicitly.
