Can't run Autopsy project due to UnsatisfiedLinkError (windows 11))

After following the guide to run autopsy project in NetBeans (setting up the sleuth kit first by running the visual studio project and building both the building\java and case-uco\jave files)

when I build the autopsy project I get a lot of bad path warnings but its builds ok
and when I try to run it, I get the following error:

org.sleuthkit.autopsy.datamodel.Installer validate
SEVERE: Is Autopsy or Cyber Triage already running?)
java.lang.UnsatisfiedLinkError: ‘java.lang.String org.sleuthkit.datamodel.SleuthkitJNI.getVersionNat()’

please help! and thank you
