What works

Installation worked with a few workaround. Connecting to a database on a different machine worked. Opening and editing workbooks worked.

What does not

The installer would not run unless it thought I had a swap file. To fool it, I did the following: Went to Regedit, under HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Session Manager\ and created a key named "Memory Management". Then, inside that, created a multi string named "PagingFiles" and set the value to "C:\pagefile.sys 766 1600"

Also, had to run setup using the command line "setup -J-Dsun.java2d.noddraw=true" otherwise the installer would crash.

And on top of that, the Net Manager would not run, had to manually configure the SQLNET.ORA and TNSNAMES.ORA.

Once that was all done though, Discoverer itself ran very well.


What was not tested

Did not test the included Reports Builder as that was already included with Oracle Forms.
