Yes, it is possible to run Oracle Forms 10g R2 on Windows 7, although, it is not officially supported by Oracle. Oracle has only certified Forms 11g (Oracle Fusion Middleware (OFM) 11g) for Windows 7. If your development requires a supported Oracle environment, then I suggest you upgrade to OFM.
The key to setting up Forms 10g on Windows 7 is the preparation. First, the Oracle Installer doesn't recognize Windows managed virtual memory so you will need to change your system virtual memory settings from "Windows Managed" to a specific size (typically 2048mb minimum). Second, you will need to change the compatibility to "Windows XP" for the Forms 10g installer and run the installer as "Administrator" for the installation to succeed.
Hope this helps,

Assuming you mean Developer Suite 10.1.2, Craig is correct in that it is not officially supported to be installed on Win7.
However, if you want to do it anyway and have access to MyOracleSupport, refer to the following note which explains how to install on Vista. The steps and requirements will be basically the same:
Note 559067.1 - How to Install Developer Suite 10.1.2.0.2 on Windows Vista
Remember that this will not be supported by Oracle, so if you need the assistance of Oracle Support you may want to consider using a supported Forms version or a supported OS.
