Hi:

Im trying to install Oracle Forms Server on Windows XP SP2,  it seems to install ok, but not showing up in Services.

Also when Im trying to install oracle 6i - i can install so far but get a message
saying "   You have selected Oracle WEb Forms which are installabel under Windows NT 5.0 only  press ok to continue to install other products or cancel to terminate.

Is there any workaround to this?

Any input to this regard would be appreciated.

Thanks.,

Normally Oracle Forms Server( I mean 9i, 10g versions, not 6i version) work fine under Windows 2000.
It is possible to install them on XP, but turn off the default firewall of XP SP2 that will prevent you
to access the ports.

You have no chance to install Forms 6i products on Windows XP - they are not supported on XP.

Is it Windows XP home or professional?

As far as I could find Forms6i is supported only for XP professional.

Oracle Forms/Reports server (standalone edition) works only on Windows 2000.
You have to see the certification matrix on Metalink  for every edition of OAS.
