    JAR to DLL : where is gone packager.exe under JDK6 64-bit ???

    Hi there!

    under windows XP / JDK 6, DLL creation from a jar file can be done with the packager, eg using .... \jdk\bin\packager.exe myJar.jar myDll
    Registering of this 32 bit DLL can then be done with .... windows\system32\regsvr32 /s myDll.dll

    Now i'd like to migrate to Windows 7, JDK6 64-bit.
    Is there an equivalent procedure ? As i cannot find the "packager.exe" anymore....

    Any help will be highly appreciated!

    From what I can tell there is currently no 64bit version of the packager, although the 32bit one should be fine. Means you'll need to use it in a 32bit application though.
    In all honesty I can't see a reason to compile a dll of java classes at all. It just seems silly; if you need a dll it would be better to write that in a language such as C++, and use that in your .NET or even java applications.
