          Hi,
          Can you post the last part of your installation log from oracleIneventory/logs folder? This will help to debug the issue.

          Regards,

              There can be a number of reasons why the Oracle Forms and Reports 11g configuration can fail or get stuck at the "Creating Domain" step. Here are some ideas which you can try which should help you:

              1. Make sure your JDK is in the PATH environment variable (preferably toward the beginning).
              2. If Node Manager has been installed as a Windows Service (during the WebLogic Server installation), the Oracle WebLogic NodeManager windows service will need to be turned off in Windows Services.
              3. Having directories in the PATH environment variables such as “Program Files (x86)…” or any paths with parentheses have been well known to cause this problem.. To fix this, you can either remove any entries involving “Program Files (x86)” or change “Program Files (x86)” to “PROGRA~2″. If you are concerned about removing a directory from PATH that is needed for another program, you are welcome remove these directories from the PATH using Command Prompt. This would only apply the PATH environment variable change to the Command Prompt session you have open. If you use this method, you will need to call config.bat using the same Command Prompt you used to change your PATH environment variable.
              4. Similar to number 3, I have seen installations fail when a directory containing spaces (ex: C:\Program Files) in the PATH also hang at Creating Domain. Either removing them or renaming them to the PROGRA~1 format (ex: C:\PROGRA~1 instead of C:\Program Files) in the PATH environment variable will fix this issue. Again, you can change the PATH environment variable in Command Prompt (and re-run config.bat in cmd) if you only want to make this modification for the installation.

              After applying any of the fixes above, exit the configuration. Delete the user_projects directory in %Middleware_Home%. Next, re-run the config.bat. The configuration should be able to continue beyond “Creating Domain”. Hope everything goes well with the configuration!

              Thanks,
