    I cannot get into the upload you posted.  Likely a company policy issue with the upload site.

    My guess is you are just running into an incompatibility issue.  Forms 6 is ancient.  I wouldn't really expect it to run in Win7.

    The video didn't really show much.

    I still think you are fighting a losing battle here.  From a quick Google there doesn't seem to be any success that I can find where a forms 6i app will run on Win 7.

    Maybe another Expert will be around later that might know how to do it.

    Accepted Solution

    Yes, the combination of Forms6i and Windows7 can work.  We have that combination working here (with both 32-bit and 64-bit Windows7, on multiple PCs) for one older application yet that we are working on upgrading.  No, I don't recommend that you spend time trying to get this combination to work.  I think you would be better off upgrading to a newer version of Oracle Forms (or something else) that is certified for Windows7.  Unfortunately, Forms6i is the last version of Oracle Forms that supports client/server deployment.

    Maybe a newer patch of Forms6i is what you would need if you really want this combination to work?
