JNI Question.  C/C++ to Java (creating a JVM)

I am having a problem creating a JVM from C/C++.  I am getting an error code of -1 when I call JNI_CreateJavaVM(...) API from C.

I am using jdk1.1.3 ->
I am setting:

JDK1_1InitArgs vm_args;
vm_args.version = JNI_VERSION_1_2;

I think the problem might have to do with my classpath.
vm_args.classpath = ???

I'm not sure what my class path should be.  I tried many different things.  I put my .class java file in the c:\ directory and set the classpath to c:\, but it didn't work.

Does anyone have any suggestions!

Thank you.  jcast17

The "classpath" usually is "%SYSTEMROOT%\\java\\classes", so you could

char acClassPath [ MAX_PATH];

sprintf ( acClassPath, "%s\\java\\classes", getenv ( "SYSTEMROOT"));

(error checking omitted for brevity)

Could you please be a little more specific.

Do I need to include rt.jar... I tried copying the above  code you gave me, but I am still unsuccesful
.
I am don't know much when it comes to this stuff.

I have seem examples that say I should include.

".;c:\\jdk1.3.1\\jre\\lib\\rt.jar;c:\\prog.class"
