How to Install Oracle Jinitiator 22.214.171.124 on Windows 7 64-bit
Oracle Jinitiator is a Java plug-in that enables Oracle Forms applications to run in a web browser. It provides a delivery mechanism for an Oracle certified Java Runtime Environment (JRE), which is required for running Oracle Forms applications.
If you are using Windows 7 64-bit, you may encounter an error message when trying to launch Oracle Forms applications that says \"FRM-92095: Oracle Jinitiator version too low. Please install version 126.96.36.199 or higher\". This is because Oracle Jinitiator is not compatible with Windows 7 64-bit and you need to install a newer version of JRE instead.
In this article, we will show you how to install Oracle Jinitiator 188.8.131.52 on Windows 7 64-bit using a workaround method that involves modifying the registry and copying some files.
Step 1: Download Oracle Jinitiator 184.108.40.206
You can download Oracle Jinitiator 220.127.116.11 from the Oracle Software Download center[^1^]. You will need to create an account and accept the license agreement before downloading the file.
The file name is jinit11822.exe and it is about 9 MB in size.
Step 2: Extract the files from the executable
You can use a tool like WinZip or WinRAR to extract the files from the executable.
Right-click on the jinit11822.exe file and choose Extract to jinit11822\\. This will create a folder named jinit11822 with several subfolders and files inside.
Step 3: Modify the registry
You need to modify the registry to make Windows 7 64-bit recognize Oracle Jinitiator as a valid Java plug-in.
Before making any changes to the registry, it is recommended to back up your registry or create a restore point in case something goes wrong.
To modify the registry, follow these steps:
Open the Start menu and type regedit in the search box.
Right-click on regedit.exe and choose Run as administrator.
Navigate to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\\SOFTWARE\\Wow6432Node\\JavaSoft\\Java Plug-in\\1.4.
If you don't see a subkey named 1.4, right-click on Java Plug-in and choose New > Key. Name it 1.4.
Select the 1.4 subkey and right-click on an empty space on the right pane. Choose New > String Value. Name it JVMPath.
Double-click on JVMPath and enter the value C:\\Program Files (x86)\\Oracle\\JInitiator 18.104.22.168\\bin\\hotspot\\jvm.dll. This is assuming that you have installed Oracle Jinitiator in the default location.
Select the 1.4 subkey again and right-click on an empty space on the right pane. Choose New > String Value. Name it JREHomeDirectory.
Double-click on JREHomeDirectory and enter the value C:\\Program Files (x86)\\Oracle\\JInitiator 22.214.171.124\\bin\\hotspot\\jre. This is assuming that you have installed Oracle Jinitiator in the ec8f644aee
