Installing Oracle Forms 10g on Windows 10 Without Error
You can install Oracle Forms 10g on Windows 10 systems, but sometimes installation crashes in between due to few reasons. To install Oracle Forms 10g on Windows 10 without error, follow the below procedures.
First, you need to set compatibility property for setup.exe. To do this locate the setup.exe file in the installation folder and right-click on it, then click on compatibility tab and then set Compatibility mode to Windows XP service pack 3 or 2 as shown in below image.
After applying the setting, check the path variable in windows, if it is very lengthy then cut the path and paste it into a text file while installing. Because the lengthy path is not supported by installation, so just leave a single path in it for time being and remove the rest. You can reset the path after installation. But remember, while installation Oracle Forms 10g also will set the path in Path variable, you must add (append) the path you cut before, so that path setting for Oracle forms 10g should remain.
After resolving the Path variable as above, now check for LD_LIBRARY_PATH variable if exists. If exists copy its setting and remove it for time being and after installation re-create it.
Now run the setup.exe to install Oracle Forms 10g on Windows 10 and it should not fail. But if it is still failing then check the log files at C:\Program Files (x86)\Oracle\Inventory\logs location. You may find some hint of unsuccessful installation.
