Hi
I have an issue with running Forms 6i . I have two different applications but the form names are same and they are in different folders. When I run the application the working directory for both application is fetched from only one folder that is set in forms60_path.
So I have to set the path each time i run the applications. Can anybody help on how to execute both the applications without this issue in my local system.

Please help me

Regards

The obvious is to change the name of one of the forms.

Alternatively use a different 'Start In' for the two different 'Shortcut buttons'.

NO David we are still doing the same tiring work of changing the registry each time.

You stated previously
I tried and a shortcut icon to run the first form.It says Access denied.

How do you run your application now?
What is the command that you use?
Can you create a shortcut on your desktop?
Can you put that command into the 'Target' slot of that shortcut's Property sheet?
Can you populate the 'Start in' slot of the shortcut's Property sheet with your directory name?
Can you duplicate the shortcut?
Can you change the 'Start in' slot of the second shortcut's Property sheet with the other directory name?
Did this solve your problem?

Hi David,
Thanks for ur good suggestions.The shortcuts with 'START IN' are working fine when they are executed using Oracle forms Runtime (ifweb60.exe) in bin directory.

But I am accessing my application using Oracle Application Server
through URLs
http://domain:port/dev60cgi/ifcgi60?config=appl

The 'appl' is configured in FORMSWEB.CFG as folows

[appl]
pageTitle=PORTAL WEB
;MetricsServerHost=IP Address of Domain
;MetricsDomainName=
form=C:\Appl\menuform.fmx
separateFrame=true
workingdirectory=C:\Appl
;envfile=default.env

The other application is accessed through the URL
http://domain:port/dev60cgi/ifcgi60?config=applnext

[applnext]
pageTitle=PORTAL WEB
;MetricsServerHost=IP Address of Domain
;MetricsDomainName=
form=C:\Applnext\menuform.fmx
separateFrame=true
workingdirectory=C:\Applnext
;envfile=default.env

The issue is the first form is invoked correctly but navigation to other forms is not based on the working directory specified there so its referring the registry path folder.
This is the reason that we are changing the forms60_path giving working directory path in registry every time we execute either of the application

Kindly advise
