Forms Builder Crashes On Clients Having PDF Utilities Installed (Doc ID 1615484.1)

Last updated on MARCH 08, 2017

Applies to:

Oracle Forms - Version and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


Forms Builder session crashes when Layout Editor is opened.

Happens for all forms. Also new blank form.

Also occurs when using a bat where e.g. PATH is set to include only current Oracle instance (and windows).

On other PCs the layout Editor can be opened.

Similar can occur when firing Forms Builder up and not just opening the layout editor (different error stack).

### Error Message ###
Oracle Forms Designer has stopped working. A problem caused the program to stop working correctly. Please close the program.
