Several listeners or panels might need access to OS-dependent shared libraries. They are divided into

Built-in libraries are available for inclusion at compile time out of the box.

To minimize the size of resulting installers, each native library must be explicitely included. This is done by the <natives> element.


For using the Shortcut Panel on Windows there are required the ShellLink native libraries to access some native APIs:


    <native type="izpack" name="ShellLink.dll"/>
    <native type="izpack" name="ShellLink_x64.dll"/>

Both 32-bit and 64-bit versions are built-in to IzPack.
