I can compile and run the demos, however. I've installed it on two computers and followed the directions, and still have this problem.
Thanks for the report. We will have a look this weekend. Could you please give some more information of your PCs OS, GFX card, driver(-version) and JDK(-version)?
Further Edit: Since the problem seemed to be the JVM Netbeans is using couldn't find the methods supplied in the JAR or perhaps DLL files, I stuck them all over the place in my JDK folders and now things seem to work. Odd, that.
Hmm, you should avoid doing this, since it might break WebStart deployment of other JOGL jars and can cause strange behaviours under some circumstances. You can keep it this way for now, but be aware, that this is problematic and the spread out JARs and DLLs need to be deleted again, when the error is tracked down.
