Forms Builder 10g - Run Forms Locally in Windows 10




After some googling, I'm finally able to run forms locally using JRE 7 in Windows 10.

Here's how to do it:
 
First, you need to download the following files:

• Java 7 Update 79: http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/java/javase/downloads/java-archive-downloads-javase7-521261.html#jre-7u79-oth-JPR

and

• Modified formsweb.cfg: http://luhunk.xtgem.com/ora/formsweb.cfg

Then, follow this step:
  1. Install Java 7 Update 79 downloaded from the link above
  2. Copy and replace the modified formsweb.cfg to Oracle Developer 10g installation folder, by default the location is: C:\DevSuiteHome_1\forms\server (don't forget to backup the original formsweb.cfg!)
  3. Now you can run the froms locally using JRE, instead of JInitiator :) 
Feel free to ask in the comment below if you have any problem :)
