How to resolve error extracting installer for Oracle Forms 12.2.1.3.0 on Win64

I need to install Oracle Forms 12.2.1.3.0 in order to be able to open/navigate/read legacy Oracle Forms from Ellucian's Banner ERP. I've downloaded the Oracle_SSN_DLM_11011652.exe file, executed it and then unzipped both zip files.

When I execute setup_fmw_12.2.1.3.0_fr_win64.exe I get the following errors. (NOTE: I've also navigated to C:\Users\TonyBone\AppData\Local\Temp\ and cleared the "read only" setting for that folder and all the files below in the hierarchy. Here's error I get in the pop up Command Window that attempts the extraction:

Launcher log file is C:\Users\TonyBone\AppData\Local\Temp\OraInstall2021-11-02_01-06-23PM\launcher2021-11-02_01-06-23PM.log.

Extracting the installer . . . . Done

Self extraction to C:\Users\TonyBone\AppData\Local\Temp\sfxC45D.tmp failed.

The log is located here: C:\Users\TonyBone\AppData\Local\Temp\OraInstall2021-11-02_01-06-23PM\launcher2021-11-02_01-06-23PM.log.


Press Enter to exit

    Hi User_ZOHKQ,

    When you unzip fmw_12.2.1.3.0_fr_win64_Disk1_2of2.zip, you should be seeing another zip file called "setup_fmw_12.2.1.3.0_fr_win64-2.zip", this file has to be extracted to the same directory where you unzipped fmw_12.2.1.3.0_fr_win64_Disk1_2of2.zip.

    Try below steps

    1) Create a folder C:\12213

    2) Copy the binaries to C:\12213

         copy fmw_12.2.1.3.0_fr_win64_Disk1_1of2.zip and fmw_12.2.1.3.0_fr_win64_Disk1_2of2.zip

    3) Now extract both the file in the same location

          right click on fmw_12.2.1.3.0_fr_win64_Disk1_1of2.zip ==> extract all and selected the location to C:\12213

          right click on fmw_12.2.1.3.0_fr_win64_Disk1_2of2.zip ==> extract all and selected the location to C:\12213

    4) Once you have unzipped fmw_12.2.1.3.0_fr_win64_Disk1_2of2.zip, you should see a file: setup_fmw_12.2.1.3.0_fr_win64-2.zip

          Extract setup_fmw_12.2.1.3.0_fr_win64-2.zip to C:\12213\setup_fmw_12.2.1.3.0_fr_win64-2

    5) Open the cmd as Administrator and change the directory to C:\12213

        cd C:\12213 and run

        setup_fmw_12.2.1.3.0_fr_win64.exe

    Thanks, Suresh

    Why are you using 12.2.1.3 and not 12.2.1.4? Error Correction Support for 12.2.1.3 will be ending soon (December). Using that version is not recommended.

    Also, when you start the Windows installer (exe) you must use an elevated shell (i.e. "Run as administrator"). This is not the same as actually being a member of the Windows Administrator group. Refer to the Installation Guide for more details.

    I've tried installing 12.2.1.4.0 but get the following error(s). Does this mean that there are 12.2.1.3.0 components that I need to uninstall first? If so, how?

    You should use a different/Empty directory for a new ORACLE_HOME.

    If C:\Oracle\Middleware\Oracle_Home was already used for different Weblogic install, try with a new path.

    Thanks, Suresh
