Start > run > regedit ... My Computer / Hkey_local_machine / software / oracle ... now the difficult part. You have to know which HOMEx is for which version of Oracle. Look and it is not too difficult. The Forms 6 home has entries with '60' in them, the 9 home has '90' in the names. The 4.5 has '45', etc. Find your FORMS60PATH and put your working directory at the BEGINNING of the list. Look to see how youe other 'PATH's have been set up.

The HOMEs are numbered 0, 1, 2, etc. ALL_HOMES has a HOME_COUNTER and a LAST_HOME. The LAST_HOME is your current home. That is, LAST_HOME = 0, means 'HOME0'. It is 'nicer' to use the 'change oracle home' application which is hanging off your Oracle hierarchy in the start > programs list than to change it directly in the Registry.
