Eclipse SWT - Jave error: no swt-win32-2133 in java.library.path

I'm trying to follow eclipse's tutorial on using SWT.  I've installed everything and I get to the point of running it and I get the following error:

Exception in thread "main" java.lang.UnsatisfiedLinkError: no swt-win32-2133 in java.library.path
      at java.lang.ClassLoader.loadLibrary(Unknown Source)
      at java.lang.Runtime.loadLibrary0(Unknown Source)
      at java.lang.System.loadLibrary(Unknown Source)

      at org.eclipse.swt.widgets.Display.<init>(Display.java:287)
      at helloWorld.HelloWorldSWT.main(HelloWorldSWT.java:14)

I've googled this and found several things and I've tried them with no luck.  For example, one of the posts says:

"Try
adding this to your VM Arguments:

-Djava.library.path=C:\Program
Files\eclipse\plugins\org.eclipse.swt.win32\os\win32\x86"

I've installed eclipse on my root directory - so in my case this should be:
-Djava.library.path=C:\eclipse\plugins

But after that I have no "org.eclipse.swt.win32" folder

I'm using Windows 7, 64 bit, so I'm thinking even if I had this folder, it woudln't be right.

As a new user to Eclipse and Java both, this is a little confusing.
Any ideas on what I need to do?

Thanks!

Do a search on *.dll under the install dir

it found 2 .dll files:

swt-gdip-win32-3650.dll
and
swt-win32-3650.dll

in C:\eclipse\configuration\org.eclipse.osgi\bundles\212\1\.cp

Should this be used in the  VM Arguments?

Yes, you can try the following, but of course you need to beware of the 23/64bit issue
-Djava.library.path=C:\eclipse\configuration\org.eclipse.osgi\bundles\212\1\.cp

Still get the same issue.

java.lang.UnsatisfiedLinkError: no swt-win32-2133 in java.library.path.

I copied the -Djava.library.path=C:\eclipse\configuration\org.eclipse.osgi\bundles\212\1\.cp
 into the VM arguments.

This is so weird... because I can't find anything about it elsewhere.

Thanks for your help!

Could you place the following as the first line of main and tell me what it prints?
System.out.println(System.getProperty("java.library.path"));

Sorry couldn't respond yesterday...  here's what it says:

C:\eclipse\configuration\org.eclipse.osgi\bundles\212\1\.cp

I've also attached my code just to show what I have.

I notice that the error specifies: "no swt-win32-2133" in java.library.path

And the .dlls I found are:
swt-gdip-win32-3650.dll
swt-win32-3650.dll

Should I find a swt-win32-2133 dll?  and if not - is there a place i can change it so it looks for one of the others instead?
package helloWorld;

import org.eclipse.swt.widgets.Display;
import org.eclipse.swt.widgets.Shell;

public class HellowWorld {

	/**
	 * @param args
	 */
	public static void main(String[] args) {
		// TODO Auto-generated method stub
		System.out.println(System.getProperty("java.library.path"));

		Display display = new Display();
		Shell shell = new Shell(display);
		shell.setText("Hello world!");
		shell.open();
		while (!shell.isDisposed()) {
		if (!display.readAndDispatch()) display.sleep();
		}
		display.dispose();
	}

}

Yes it looks like you have a slightly broken implementation - it's looking for the wrong dependency. Try getting a different version.

You could try copying the dll to the expected name, but i wouldn't set your hopes too high ...

youre version of SWT is not compatible with your version of eclipse.
Suggest you grab the latest version of eclipse and try it

thats wrong

no it shouldn't, thats old
upgrading your eclipse should resolve it

Thanks for your help with this.  I'm using SWING for now, I'll have to implement your suggestions at a later time.  This was frustrating, but I appreciate your help!
