Google Earth Integration in 64-bit SWT application [message #1081065] Tue, 06 August 2013 19:14 Go to next message

Hello there,

Unfortunately I have not managed to integrate Google Earth in a 64-bit SWT application (Windows 7/Internet Explorer 8/ Java 7). As soon as I start the application, every time I get the message that the Google Earth plugin could not be loaded and that I should re-install it. Of course, I've already tried this, but without success.

Meanwhile, I have rebuilt the application on a 32-bit environment. Here the Google Earth plugin is detected and loaded successfully.

Is there a way to run the Google Earth Plugin in 64-bit SWT? How can this be done? Or is this basically only possible in a 32-bit environment? Thank you for your help.

private void initalizeBrowser() {
		try {
			browser = new Browser(shell, SWT.NONE);
			browser.setVisible(true);
		} catch (SWTError e) {
			showErrMsgBox("Could not instantiate Browser: " + e.getMessage());
			display.dispose();
		}
		if (browser != null)
			setSite(); // googleEarth.html is loaded
	}

See if it works for you in stand-alone 64-bit IE. I suspect it won't,
in which case it also definitely won't work in a 64-bit Browser widget
that's embedding the 64-bit IE renderer.

Hi,

but is there any workaround to run the 32-bit IE from 64-bit SWT?
I know I can use a 32-bit JVM and 32-bit SWT but that's not an option.

Some other plugins like Adobe Reader are also not running in IE 64-bit.

Regards,
Chris

No there isn't, IE's renderer is embedded in-process, so if we're using
64-bit pointers then it needs to be as well.
