Thank in advance!

I have 64bit Windows 7 with installed Oracle Database 11g Express Edition Release - 64bit.

I installed Oracle WebLogic 10.3.6 how it described here. But it's install 32bit jdk1.6 with it, I couldn't uncheck it and I don't know why:

enter image description here

After this, when I had tried to install Oracle Forms 11g R2, on the 5th step it thrown error:

"INST-07408: Unable to install or configure the product on a 32-bit JVM on a 64-bit machine"

I've been thinking about it for long time, but the best thing I did it just spoof 32bit jdk1.6 on 64bit jdk1.7 right in folder with 32bit jdk1.6. It worked for me and I was able to install Oracle Forms 11g.

After this I copied the tnsnames.ora from



'C:\oraclexe\Middleware\asinst_3\config' (yeah, it's already 3rd instance)

After this I run Oracle Forms and trying to connect (system, root), but I receive the error

'ORA-12154: TNS:could not resolve the connect identifier specified'

But I can connect from sqlplus (system, root), which I run from


Also I can connect from Sql Developer.

And sqlplus from


throw error

'Message file UTILITY_MSG\spw.msb not found!'

I'm trying to solve this problem for the second straight night!! Help me please!:)

  • Have you set TNS_ADMIN environment variable? – JSapkota May 13 '16 at 6:53
  • @JSapkota, I am tried to do it in both ways: set environment variable TNS_ADMIN to 'C:\oraclexe\app\oracle\product\11.2.0\server\network\ADMIN' and in registry HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Oracle\KEY_OH836589237 there is TNS_ADMIN that setted to 'C:\oraclexe\Middleware\asinst_3\config', I tried to replace it with 'C:\oraclexe\app\oracle\product\11.2.0\server\network\ADMIN'. But it's still not working. – pisarik May 13 '16 at 12:21
  • For the first I installed Oracle Forms 12c and it's just didn't start with error 'FRM-10039: Unable to start up the Form Builder', and I couldn't find how to remove it. After I installed Oracle Forms 11g the Oracle Forms 12c became able to start without errors, but it cannot connect to database too. – pisarik May 13 '16 at 12:31
