One of my Customer is having trouble installing this software on Windows 7 - 64 bit (install failed du to an obscure not found error message - missing file).
As this does ont appaer to be the latest version, my guess is it was not meant to be installed nor tested on this OS.
Do you have any recommandation on Windows Combatibilities issue for this precise version ?
Where can I found the install notice with the OS/environnement requirements ?
Thanks for your help.
ps : As you might have guess, I'm not familiar at all (yet) with this tool. so bear the lack of knowledge.
Forms 6i (Developer 6i) was desupported a long time ago (Jan 2005). Microsoft hadn't even named Windows 7 at that time. Take a look at MyOracleSupport note 228666.1
I do not recommend trying to install Forms/Reports 6.x on Windows 7 for a variety of reasons, unless it is your own environment and you realize that you will likely have problems with it.
I (as the Forms Product Manager) would prefer to see you upgrade your customer to a current release like 18.104.22.168, but if you/they must use this very old version, you might be able to have some success using Windows XP Mode installed in your Windows 7 environment. This wasn't exactly considered certified or supported either, but it should work and since 6i isn't supported any longer, you really don't have many options. This will only work with Windows 7 Professional or higher. Refer to the Microsoft website for more information.
