Rwclient.bat Fails With REP-0177 When Windows Username Has Multiple Words (Doc ID 2122820.1)

Last updated on FEBRUARY 25, 2019

Applies to:

Oracle Reports Developer - Version 11.1.2.2.0 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

You have installed FMW Forms/Reports 11gR2 on Windows platform as <USER NAME> Windows administrator user.

When running any report via rwclient.bat from DOS prompt as Windows user account that has more than one word (in this case, <USER NAME>), then it fails with error:

REP-0177: An error occurred while running in a remote server.
The parameter value is invalid: <NAME>


STEPS
The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:

1. Login with a Windows user that has more than one word (<USER NAME>).

2. Open DOS prompt

3. echo %USERNAME%

<USER NAME>

4. cd %ORACLE_INSTANCE%\config\reports\bin

5. Run any report:


It appears that any space in USERNAME environment variable value somehow gets parsed in the rwclient.bat command.


Notes:
This happens regardless if user has Administrator privileges or not.

This does NOT reproduce with:

Changes

 New FMW Reports/Forms 11gR2 installation.
