Running Forms and Reports 6i on Windows Server 2003

Update:11-30Source: network consolidation

Hello,
Has anyone managed to get Forms and Reports 6i (running on 9iAS web) to run succesfully on Windows Server 2003? If so would you mind sharing what you needed to do to get it to work. I don't care about any of the other components of 9iAS other than forms and reports. Also is it possible to run on the 64bit version of this OS?
The problem I'm encountering (on the 64bit version of Windows) is that I can't get our webforms to launch any reports. The forms run just fine. I can run the report manually using rwrun60.exe and entering all the parameters by hand. BUT when I run the report from within the form a rwrun60.exe process starts and runs at full cpu. After a bit it dies but the form still continues to wait for it. The only way to get out is to close the browser and forcefully kill the form instance. If anyone has any ideas on what this could be any help is appreciated.
Thanks

The Best Answer

Hi Jan,
I haven't tried to run Forms and Reports on Windows Server 2003, but I have worked on Windows XP and UNIX with F/R 6i 9i and 10g. I never had much luck with 9i Forms and Reports, 10g rel 1 was better, but 10g rel 2 is best. I recommend you bite the bullet and convert to 10g AS, Forms & Reports 10g rel 2. After running your 6i F/R to 10g through the converter, you may need to adjust fonts and colors.
Regarding your specific question, I am surprised that the rwrun60 works at all with 9i AS. And rwrun90 probably won't run the 6i version of your reports without recompiling in the 9 version.
Hope this helps,
Frank
