Cannot load native Windows dll: URI scheme is not "file"

I’m having the same issue. Please inform me if you have any patches.


Your thread has been linked to the appropriate issue (WORDSJAVA-1925) and you will be notified as soon as it is resolved or any further updates is available. Sorry for the inconvenience.


Regarding WORDSJAVA-1925, it seems just to be a warning and there is nothing to worry about. The native Windows DLL is used to retrieve Windows native printer metrics. The metrics are used to print documents in MS Word style (like from local PC with installed MS Word).

Please tell us more about your system configuration. Do you perform some printing? It maybe that you print something but your environment cannot load from file or something. Please share the complete environment details (e.g. OS, JDK versions, JVM settings etc) of the machine you are getting this problem on. Thanks for your cooperation.

The issues you have found earlier (filed as WORDSJAVA-1925) have been fixed in this Aspose.Words for .NET 18.12 update and this Aspose.Words for Java 18.12 update.
