    Local IAS on win7 with "ODS 10g" in "Windows XP mode"

    531870
      Hi
      I'am running windows 7 64bit,
      and installed "Oracle Developer Suite 10g" in "Windows XP mode".

      When I run the local IAS in the "virtual XP machine" forms application start
      with http://localhost:8888/forms/frmservlet?config=webutil
      but when I start OC4J Instance (Windows XP mode) from win7
      and use the following url: http://[IP of Windows virtual PC or hostname]:8888/forms/frmservlet?config=webutil
      the application will not start.

      Any ideas? Is it someone who run local IAS from forms developer in win7 in "XP mode"?

      Regards

          It is a little unclear as to what you have installed and what exactly you are doing. You said:
          ....When I run the local IAS ...
          Do you have Application Server installed as well as Developer Suite?

          Then you say:
          ...but when I start OC4J ...
          If you have both iAS and iDS installed, you will have problems because the system PATH will point to the last installation that took place.

          So, let's assume you only have Developer Suite and in order to prevent confusion let's refer to your environment as Win7 and WinXP. Assuming you have installed Developer Suite in Windows XP, you should start OC4J from that installation. Once started, you should be able to open a browser in WinXP and run the test form with http://<WinXP Name>:8888/forms/frmservlet?form=test

          If you are trying to run OC4J in one environment then access it from the other, whether or not this will work will depend on how the networking layer between Win7 and WinXP has been configured. But I would first ensure that you can run locally (from the same area where the installation is) first.

          Take a look at some of the MS documentation in order to assist you with configuring the net settings correctly. Here two which may help:

            Tobias,
            First off, please understand that Oracle Developer Suite (ODS) 10g is not certified or supported by Oracle for installation on Windows 7. It can be made to work, but if you run into any trouble - you'll have to ask for help here in the Forums; Oracle will not offer you any support since they haven't certified the installation. Having said that...
            and installed "Oracle Developer Suite 10g" in "Windows XP mode".
            What version of ODS 10g (eg; 10.1.2.x.x)? Could you please elaborate on the "Windows XP mode"? Did you just set the "Compatability" option to Windows XP or have you downloaded and installed the "Windows XP Mode" add-on from Microsoft? This could be a contributing factor, but I think the real issue is what Java Runtime you have installed. ODS comes preconfigured to use the Oracle Jinitiator verison 1.3.1.26. If you have installed this version, it is completely not compatible with Internet Explorer 8. You will need to install the Sun (Oracle) JRE 1.6.0_16 or higher.
            the application will not start.
            Can you describe what happens? (IE opens, but displays blank or gray page, etc). Typically, problems running a Form from the Forms Builder is either caused by the absense of a compatible JRE or a misconfigured "formsweb.cfg" to reflect the installed JRE.
            and use the following url: http://[IP of Windows virtual PC or hostname]:8888/forms/frmservlet?config=webutil
            I noticed you are using the Webutil config. Have you completed the necessary configuration steps for WebUtil (jacob.jar, webutil.cfg configuration, etc)?

            Hope this helps,
            Craig B-)

            If someone's response is helpful or correct, please mark it accordingly.

              Hello!

              I have only installed Oracle Developer Suite in "windows xp mode" (downloaded and installed the "Windows XP Mode" add-on from Microsoft),
              and will use OC4J instance for local tests on our forms application.

              My config for the webutildemo is correct configured and it's working in WinXP.
              The problem is the networking layer between Win7 and WinXP.

              I will take a look at the MS documentation links.

              Regards
