[izpack-users] Problem creating shortcuts with Windows(UnsatisfiedLinkError)

Hi Benjamin,
it seems so that the OS API function CoInitializeEx fails.
I do not know why; at other installations it works.
What I do not understand is the line

>> java.lang.UnsatisfiedLinkError: initializeCOM

That line will be written if the the shortcut dll will not be found.
But then "could not create shortcut instance" should not be thrown.

Do you have added 
    <native type="izpack" name="ShellLink.dll"/>
in your installation description file?

Works the IzPack installation on the box where JavaABC-Installer fails?

Secound puzzle for me is the time the exception will be thrown.
If I look into the code or test, the code will be performed at 
panelActivate of ShortcutPanel. Are the ShortcutPanel your first panel?
