Hope you folks can help me out on this problem.
We are using 10g release 1 - Version 9.0.4
It's installed on unix solaris.
The end users access the application through Internet explorer 6 and J-Initiator and webutil. Currently the operating system is XP
The gods have decided to move all the end users to Vista OS. Now this is the problem.
Anyway, Firstly I need to get JRE to work. The Vista version that I have been given to play with contains JRE 1.6
I modified formsweb.cfg as per other threads to pick up JRE which it does do.
Can you help to troubleshoot?
First of all
Your server is UNIX Solaris
Form version is 1og Release 1
End User is previously XP and now Vista
What is your JRE Version ? JRE1.6.XX
However the forms keep crashing at one field all the time. The error message is forms session <38> aborted. Unable to communicate with runtime processes.At What point it does happened ?
Is there any issue of webutil ? If yes
Did you configure webutil ?
did you configure default.env
did you set forms_path ?
Your current version of Forms(10gR1) is not certified with windows vista.
You need to upgrade to 10gR2 and apply the latest patchset(10.1.2.3 patchset).
For Forms 10 client certification information, please see this:
Be aware that Forms 10 (iAS 10.1.2) is no longer supported. If you are working in a production environment, it is recommended to upgrade to a supported version(11gR1 or 11gR2).
If someone's answer is helpful or correct please mark it accordingly.
Ok, were to start....?
First, why would you be upgrading from an old OS like XP to an old (and not so good) OS like Vista? Second, if this is an actual production environment, I do not recommend trying to hack an installation in order to get it to work on an uncertified environment. This is especially true if you plan to work with Oracle Support at some point in the future.
Here is what I can tell you from what you have offered:
<blockquote>1. Forms 9.0.4 has been obsolete (desupported) since 31-DEC-2006
2. No JRE version newer than 1.4 was supported for use with Forms 9
3. No IE version newer than 6 was supported for use with Forms 9</blockquote>
Bottom line is that if you are not willing or able to upgrade your Forms version, the only way you will make this work in any stable manner is to essentially apply some hacks. Obviously, in a business environment this is probably not a good approach.
They have decided not to deploy Vista with 10gR1 and sticking with XP for now...Unacceptable level or risk.
