    @Tony007 I have to say, I can't at all follow what you are saying. Also, you didn't include versions, which might be important here. For example for Forms you must use Java 8u211 or newer on the user tier (end user running form). Also, you will not be able to have multiple Java JRE versions installed. If you do, the newest will always attempt to be used.

    Also, for Forms 12.<something> are you trying to run embedded in the browser or using Web Start or using Forms Standalone Launcher?

    First, unless you happen to be in one of a very few rare cases, there is no reason to have 64bit JREs installed. You should remove/uninstall these. Second, you should not have more than one version of the same family installed. Therefore you should remove all installations of Java 8u40 (32 and 64 bit). And in this spirit, you should not be using any Java version older than 8. Unless you are running something extremely old, most applets should work correctly with Java 8, so uninstalling Java 7 is a good idea too. That said, as I mentioned if you try to run an app with Java 7, it will load the v8 JVM automatically anyway. The only way to prevent this is with a Deployment Rule Set.

    So to your question/comment: "...i got this message...". So what's the problem? Click Enable and continue.

    Let me try again. Follow these exact instructions:

    .1. Close ALL instances of Internet Explorer

    .2. Uninstall JRE 8u40 (x86)

    .3. Uninstall JRE 8u211 (x86)

    .4. Download and install JRE 8u281 (x86)

    .5. Retest. If prompted, click on Enable button regarding Java Plugin

    still having error now working with webstart

    You opened this thread saying that there is a blank screen when you try running your form. When you use JWS and launch from the browser, the browser window will be blank because the content is launched in a separate window. So the question is whether or not you have properly configured your "config". If it doesn't include the proper settings for JWS then it won't work.

    In that "blank" browser, open the source (Ctrl+U). If you see something like this it means your configuration is wrong.

    In order to verify your configuration, I would recommend using the command line as a test. Open a command prompt and do this:

    o Ensure that PATH points to Java 8 JRE. Execute: java -version

    o Enter this then press Return: javaws "http://yourserver:9001/forms/frmservlet?config=webstart"

    Assuming you replaced "yourserver" with your server (and the port number with yours, the test form should have been presented. If this works, replace "config=webstart" with your custom config which I assume you created because you blurred it out in the image you shared. If that fails then you just found the issue.

    If the above HTML is what you are getting in any browser except Internet Explorer, that explains why the app isn't running. If you are using IE, it must be version 11 and as mentioned earlier, you must install and enable (remember the button from above?) a 32bit JRE (version 8U151 or newer).

    If you are using IE11 and given the HTML source you shared, I suspect Java is starting. Meaning, you should have access to the Java Console. There you likely will find the cause of the problem. If Java is not starting then the JRE is either not properly installed or is the wrong version or is being blocked by other software on the machine (e.g. virus scanner, security software, etc).

    For all other browsers you must configure and use Java Webstart. If you want to use a custom configuration section/name, start by copying the Web Configuration named "webstart" then customize the new one as you desire.
