Problem Installing Oracle Developer Suite 10g on Windows 10 64 bit

Today i’m trying to install Oracle Developer Suite 10g on my laptop, OS Windows 10 64bit and i’m having some trouble. I’ve extract developer suite disk1 and disk2.rar, and try double click on setup.exe but getting some errors. I already fix it, but i think it would be nice if i write it here, may be can be useful for others who facing the same problem during the instalation oracle developer suite.

What i have :

  1. OracleXE 11g
  2. Orcle DevSuite 11g Disk1 and Disk2
  3. jInit
  4. Windows
  5. 10


It’s appear on cmd like this :Starting Oracle Universal Installer…
Checking installer requirements…
Checking operating system version: must be 5.0, 5.1 or 5.2 . Actual 6.1
Failed <<<<

Then appears form that says would i like to install in compability mode? I click yes. The instalation started again, then i find the next errors :

Checking monitor: must be configured to display at least 256 colors . Actual
4294967296 Passed
Checking swap space: 0 MB available, 1535 MB required. Failed <<<<
Some requirement checks failed. You must fulfill these requirements before
continuing with the installation, at which time they will be rechecked.
Continue? (y/n) [n]

I type ‘y’ and it works, it drives me into instalation form, i click next next but, again, i have problem that says “Install has encoontered an error while attempting to verify your virtual memory setting. please verify that the sum of the initial sizes of the paging files is atleast 256 MB”

I start to search the same issue on google and find this thread that helps me a lot.

 have to remember that Oracle Developer Suite (ODS) 10g was written before well before Windows 7. Officially, ODS 10g is not Oracle Certified or supported on Windows 7 64-bit. Having said that, it can be made to work – relatively easy. Following these steps to install:
1. As you have discovered, ODS 10g installer can’t check Virtual Memory (VM) when it is managed by Windows. Therefore, you have to change the VM to specific sizes for the ODS installer to be able to read the settings. I recommend you set the Minimum to 2048 and the Max to 4096. Once the installation is complete, you can change VM back to Windows Managed.

Here step by step to change the size of virtual memory i found :

2. The ODS installer also checks for specific versions of Windows. The next error you would have gotten is that the installer needs Windows 5.0, 5.1, 5.2 or 5.3. You have to set the compatibility option to Windows XP service pack 3. Also, Oracle products are not designed to use “Least Privileges” so you must explicitly run the installer as Administator.

To set the compatibility and run-as –

 – Right-Click on the Setup.exe and select Properties
 – Choose Compatability tab => Compatability Mode
 – Select “Run this program in compatability mode for : Windows XP (Service Pack 3).
 – While in the Compatability Tab – also check the “Run this program as an administrator” as well.
I following the step, so far it works but then i got another errorrs (Oh, God!) Environment Path. It says that ” The value of the environtment variable PATH is more than 1023 characters, this value can not be set.”
It says that i need to remove some value path to reduce sthe size.
I need to copy text in variable path, delete some value, save it and continue instalation until it’s completed. Then, i can add again the value i’ve removed before, and it works! Thanks!
ORA12560 : TNS protocol adapter error
Instalation is finished and i can open my oracle form builder, ready to create new form. But, when i try to connect to database, it gives me error TNS Protocol Adapter Error. After do some browsing here and there, i solve my problem by adding local service connaction in Net Manager.
Just type Net Manager on search windows, choose Oracle Net Configuration – Service Naming – click add button.
Fill net service name, and follows the instruction. At the end, you have to test connection. At first it will give error, klik change login button and fill login information with your login account, clik test again, if successfull, click finish.
Okay, i can connect oracle form to database, but, here the new problem i got :  FRM-10142: The HTTP Listener is not running on -blablabla- at port 8889.
To solve this issue was very simple, just type ocj4 on your start windows, click Start OC4J instance, just wait until it fully started. Then, try to run oracle form again, wohooo! it’s success, after all this time facing some errorrs, finally i can do it!
