I read that some people managed to install Forms 6i on Windows 7. However, as this combination of Oracle software and operating system wasn't certified, there's no "official" support for it so you'll have to Google for instructions.

On the other hand, option that works OK is: install virtual machine on your computer and put Windows XP onto it. Then install Forms 6i; it should work just fine (as Forms 6i and XP was certified once upon a time).

Also, consider upgrading to a more recent Oracle Forms version. I understand that client-server is still frequently used in some parts of the world, but - as the time goes by - it is difficult to maintain old Forms on new Windows.

Since it was a new machine, we decided to format the system and redo the procedures and it worked fine without any errors.

Thank you.

What does format the system and redo the procedures mean?

Be aware that Forms 6i will not connect to 12.2 database.

Removed the OS and installed OS and then Forms and Report 6i version.

We are using Oracle 10g Release 2 only.
