Oracle Jinitiator 1.3.1.21 on Vista


I recently received a windows Vista laptop from CapGemini specially to be used at one of our customer contracts. This was because of the fact some special security tools needed to be installed to be able to work at the customer side. To be able to use the Oracle e-business suite I needed to run Oracle Jinitiator 1.3.1.21 in combiantin with Windows vista and Internet Explorer version 7 (7.0.6000.16809). However every time I tried to logon and started a session to the forms section of Oracle e-business suite internet explorer crashed.

After some searching I found the solution at the website of theappsfactory.com
. After doing some steps I have Jinitiator 1.3.1.21 working with Windows vista. Just follow the following steps:

1. Download and install the latest version of Java (such as Version 6, Update 11). You can get it here.


2. Copy the file C:\Program Files\Java\jre6\bin\client\jvm.dll to folder C:\Program Files\Oracle\Jinitiator 1.3.1.21\bin\hotspot. (Overwrite the existing jvm.dll.)

3. In folder C:\Program Files\Oracle\Jinitiator 1.3.1.21\lib, rename "font.properties.zh.5" to "font.properties.zh.6" and "font.properties.zh.5.1" to "font.properties.zh.6.1"

4. If you use multiple languages, use a text editor (such as Notepad) to open file "C:\Program Files\Oracle\Jinitiator 1.3.1.21\lib\font.properties". Search for "\u5b8b\u4f53=SIMSUN.TTF" and change it to "\u5b8b\u4f53=SIMSUN.TTC". This is an optional step.
