JLink tries to find the JLinkNativeLibrary.dll in different locations
of the local file
system (take a look at the method NativeLink.loadNativeLibrary in the
JLink source code).

The location of the JLink installation directory can be explicitly
specified by setting
the JLINK_LIB_DIR environment variable in the Windows System control
panel
or by setting the Java system property "com.wolfram.jlink.libdir",
i.e.,

try {
    String jLinkDir = "C:\\Program Files (x86)\\Wolfram Research\
\Mathematica\\6.0\\SystemFiles\\Links\\JLink";
    System.setProperty("com.wolfram.jlink.libdir", jLinkDir);
    ml = MathLinkFactory.createKernelLink(strArg);
    ...
