Converter is using dlopen to load found in the authoring/converter/bin/linux64 folder. Normally this is the same folder as the converter binary, so it’s found via normal search. There are a number of other .so and .tx files in the bin folder that Exchange requires.

Be sure your docker container image contains the entire contents of the converter/bin/linux64 folder. The error you’re showing indicates that the dlopen call failed.


Thank you very much for your explaination. The error i had was that the was a symlink to the real shared library so docker could not access the file.

Everything works as expected now, thank you!
