I have built an application using Oracle Forms and Reports and now need to install it on a couple user machines for demo/pilot. There is no Forms Server available to be used for installation, nor is there anyone available to set one up so need to install the forms and reports runtime engine on the client machines which run win2k.

It was suggested to me that I could locate the ifrun60.exe on a shared drive and just run it from there, without going through any oracle install process on the client. When I do this I get the message:

"message file p:\orant\dbs\fmcus.msb not found "-- This file is in my \orant\forms60 directory and not in the one where it is looking. The forms runtime runs fine on the machine in which forms was originally installed, (the one that has "shared" its drive).

This sounds to me like some setup needs to happen on the client. Does anyone know if I have to use the oracle installer to install the forms runtime engine on the client or if I can simply "run" ifrun60.exe from the shared drive? It may be something as simple as forms environment variables, needing setting. I don't know. Is anyone else running the forms runtime engine from a shared drive and did they have to do anything special on the client?
