12c Forms Silent Installation Does Not Wait Until Completion (Doc ID 2877346.1)

Last updated on JUNE 23, 2022

Applies to:

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


When installing 12c Infrastructure, the installer waits until completion.

java -jar <PATH_TO>\fmw_12. -silent -responseFile <PATH_TO>\Infra.rsp


Whereas forms installer doesn't wait until completion.

setup_fmw_12. -silent -nowait -responseFile <PATH_TO>\frinstall.rsp

When running the installer the prompt should wait until the installer finishes but it does not wait in forms installation. The command prompt immediately returns with return code 0 (successful), independent from the actual result of the installation.

The  combination of  the parameters  -nowait and -noconsole doen't work as expected.

In 11g this works as expected using the below parameters.

setup.exe -silent -waitforcompletion -noconsole -force -responseFile fr.rsp
