When performing File > Export or opening a File Attachment from Forms the new Internet Explorer session starts as expected, but instead of showing dialog to Save/Open the output file it renders the login page (11.5.10) or an error message (R12.0/R12.1).
The IE session shows AppsLocalLogin.jsp. Reviewing the parameters passed in the URL include:
The IE session shows following error message:
Client PC uses Sun JRE 1.6.0_18, 1.6.0_19 or 1.6.0_20 for running Forms Applet and the browser is Internet Explorer. Using Firefox the problem is not reproduced.
Other scenarios which could give the same problem are the following. Similarity is that all start a new IE browser session from Forms
- Selecting a Self Service (OA Framework page) function from Forms. In this case you may not see the login page, but instead the error "You have insufficient privileges for the current operation. Please contact your system Administrator."
- IE window started after Forms session ran into (ICX) Session Time-out. Login window is expected here, but runs into a loop of being rendered over and over again.
The Sun JRE 1.6.0_18-b07, 1.6.0_19-b04 or 1.6.0_20-b02 is installed on the client PC
