How to Install Oracle JInitiator 220.127.116.11 on Windows 7 64-bit
Oracle JInitiator is a Java applet that allows you to run Oracle Forms applications in a web browser. However, it is not compatible with newer versions of Java and may cause problems on Windows 7 64-bit systems. In this article, we will show you how to download and install Oracle JInitiator 18.104.22.168 on Windows 7 64-bit using two methods: one with a binary package and one with a batch script.
Method 1: Using a Binary Package
This method involves downloading a zip file that contains the Oracle JInitiator files and some registry entries. You will need to extract the zip file, copy the Oracle folder to your Program Files directory, edit two registry files with your user ID, and run all the registry files to complete the installation. Here are the steps:
Download the binary package from this link.[^2^]
Extract the JInit 22.214.171.124 for Windows 7 x64.zip file to a folder of your choice.
Copy the Oracle folder to C:\\Windows\\Program Files (Not the âprogram files (x86)â folder). If you install Windows on a different drive, change it accordingly.
Open the Reg folder and find two registry files that have HKEY_USERS in the title: Oracle JInitiator 126.96.36.199 â Added Registry â HKEY_USERS â After Install.reg and Oracle JInitiator 188.8.131.52 â Modified Registry â HKEY_USERS â After Install.reg.
Open each file with a text editor (such as Notepad) and go to EditâReplaceâ (Ctrl+H).
In the Find what box, enter S-1-5-21-1085031214-1563985344-1801674531-500 (the default value) and in the Replace with box, enter your user ID. You can find your user ID by opening regedit and expanding HKEY_USERS and looking for a string that has a similar format as in the picture below.[^2^]
Choose Replace All and save the file. Repeat this for the other file.
Run all the registry files in the Reg folder by double-clicking on them. You may get an error on one of them (the HKEY_Local_Machine one), but just ignore it. It should not affect the installation.
Restart your browser and try to access your Oracle Forms application. It should load Oracle JInitiator and start your application.
Method 2: Using a Batch Script
This method involves downloading a batch script that automates the steps above and also uses a command line utility called fart.exe to replace text in the registry files. You will need to download the batch script and fart.exe, run the batch script as administrator, and restart your browser to complete the installation. Here are the steps:
Download the batch script from this link.[^2^]
Download fart.exe from this link.[^2^]
Extract both zip files to a folder of your choice.
Right-click on Jinit11816_Win7_x64.bat and choose Run as administrator.
The batch script will create an Oracle folder in your Program Files 061ffe29dd
