Install Weblogic 10.3.6 64Bit using JDK 7, Configure Forms & Reports 11gR2 on Windows 8 64Bit


A wonderful article about setting up Weblogic Server 10.3.6 64Bit using JDK 7 is available here(Install Weblogic Server 10.3.6 64bit)

Once you installed the product, installing forms and reports 11g should be as easy as installing any software bundle on Windows platform.

However, one of the nasty errors we came across multiple times were related to JAVA

While the forms & reports 11gR2 reaches 19% installation, it stops and java errors are thrown in the log file, without giving any prompts over the GUI. If the installation stops @ 19% for a long time, cancel the installation and restart. That deals with the java error

Once you completed the forms and reports installation, you can invoke the configuration as described with our earlier post

and you should be online within 20-25 minutes!

Uninstall Weblogic Server 10.3.6 & Forms, reports 11g


Quite a times, uninstalling Oracle products from a development machine could be quite troublesome, many times with errors difficult to understand. One of the most common errors

One of the most common errors as below


Oracle Universal Installer


The Java RunTime Environment was not found at C:\DOCUME~1\v859971\LOCALS~1\Temp\OraInstall2013-09-05_01-10-08PM\jre\bin\javaw.exe. Hence, the Oracle Universal Installer cannot be run.

Please visit and install JRE version 1.3.1 or higher and try again.

A Discussion about the same here:

Here is a quick workaround to address such situations

Copy the latest jre installation to a path without spaces


to, eg: C:\jre6

Switch to the folder where you have the “setup.exe”


D:\>cd D:\WebLogic\Middleware\oracle_common\oui\bin

Check what are the switches supported by the “setup.exe”

D:\WebLogic\Middleware\oracle_common\oui\bin>setup.exe -jreLoc C:\jre6 –help

Now, start uninstall process by starting the “setup.exe” with required switches

D:\WebLogic\Middleware\oracle_common\oui\bin>setup.exe -jreLoc C:\jre6 –deinstall

The setup GUI should start without throwing further errors now!

Once the components are uninstalled, you can uninstall weblogic server from “Oracle Weblogic” context menu, and the operation(s) should be smooth!
