JShortcut is a JNI library to allow Java programs to create shortcuts and menu items on Windows. For more information, see README.html. Types of download files: jshortcut-X.Y-dist.jar Self-extracting distribution of version X.Y jshortcut-X.Y.jar Runtime library for version X.Y jshortcut_ARCH-X.Y.dll DLL for version X.Y, architecture ARCH ARCH=x86 is the 32-bit Intel architecture. This is also the architecture for the DLL with no architecture in its name. ARCH=amd64 is the 64-bit AMD DLL contributed by Oberzalek. ARCH=ia64 is the 64-bit Intel Architecture DLL contributed by Oberzalek. If you want to build jshortcut yourself, download the dist file and extract it by running the command "java -jar jshortcut-X.Y-dist.jar". This will also provide you with jshortcut.jar and the 32-bit x86 version of the DLL, so if that's what you want you don't have to download those files separately. If you just want to use jshortcut but don't care about building it, download the runtime jar file and one or more of the dll files. In either case, after downloading rename the files to jshortcut.jar and jshortcut.dll. The oberzalek jar file includes all three DLLs inside the jar file, as well as code to extract the appropriate DLL to a temp dir. If you download that file, you should be able to use it directly as your jar file for any of the three platforms. Jim McBeath http://www.alumni.caltech.edu/~jimmc
