Hello mates,

In my office I used XP with developer 6i, database Oracle 8 but recently my PC crashed & I bought a new PC, In my new PC I cant install XP, so I have to run with Win7.
Now please suggest my which version developer will be suite with Win7 instead of Developer 6i?

Thank's in Advance.

If your PC is new, I would expect it to be running 64 bit Windows 10 (why would you buy something as old as 7?) and I think you may have trouble running Forms 6i and database 8 on that. Particularly as you probably have only old 32 bit versions. You'll need to install WebLogic (which they call Fusion Middleware Infrastructure nowadays) and then Forms and Reports 12.2, and a 12.1 database. I think there may be a cut down "standalone" Forms you can use just for development.
Alternatively, if you don't want to join the twenty first century, you could use VirtualBox to create a 32 bit Windows XP guest VM and run your old software in that.

Thank's for your reply. Can you please give me the link of downloading Fusion Middleware Infrastructure and Forms and Reports 12.2. I tried but failed.

It looks like you could use 11g:

Oracle Database 11g Release 2 (11.2.0.1.0) for Microsoft Windows (32-bit):
http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/database/enterprise-edition/downloads/112010-win32soft-098987.html

Oracle Forms and Reports 11g Release 2 for Windows x86:
