    You need to install Fusion Middleware Infrastructure first.

    I strongly recommend installing and using and not Error Correction Support for ends this December.

    The installation steps are as follows, but be sure to read the Installation Guide AND System Requirements. It is important that your environment is properly setup BEFORE you start installing.


    1. Read System Requirements and Installation Guide
    2. Install Fusion Middleware Infrastructure into a new (empty) home
    3. Install Forms and Reports When prompted, select the home created for Step 2
    4. Run Repository Creation Utility (RCU)
    5. Run Configuration Wizard
    6. Start Node Manager, Admin Server, then any other managed servers you configured during step 5. If running on Windows, it is critically important that you start the servers from an elevated shell. Refer to the Installation Guide for details.

    All software and links to documentation can be found from the Forms product page:
