Select a different install type or provide a different Oracle Home having all dependencies. Check http://www.oracle.com/pls/topic/lookup?ctx=fmw122140&id=installhome for details about compatible products and install types.

    You need to install Fusion Middleware Infrastructure first.

    I strongly recommend installing and using 12.2.1.4 and not 12.2.1.3. Error Correction Support for 12.2.1.3 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.

    Steps:

    1. Read System Requirements and Installation Guide https://docs.oracle.com/en/middleware/developer-tools/forms/
    2. Install Fusion Middleware Infrastructure 12.2.1.4 into a new (empty) home
    3. Install Forms and Reports 12.2.1.4. 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:
