Remote Server Administration Tools for Windows 8.1

 

If you are a windows domain administrator, Microsoft “Remote Server Administration Tools for Windows 8.1” would be a perfect companion which will assist you to carryout a major chunk of domain related activities without leaving the comfort of your chair, from a Windows 8.1 client box!

Please note each version of Windows client (starting from Windows 7) requires platform supported update package from Microsoft for the installation, thus, you cannot download the remote administration package for Windows7 or Windows 8 and expect to get it installed on Windows 8.1

Further, You must have US English language installed (Keyboard language is not enough, less said). You must download and install the language pack before installing the remote administration update package.

You must run the Windows Update and make sure your box is patched with latest updates, to avoid any possible installation failures

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!
