FUSION PIM: ADFDi downloader OracleFADesktop.exe missing from server 404 error received (Doc ID 1399515.1)

Last updated on NOVEMBER 08, 2016

Applies to:

Oracle Fusion Product Model - Version 11.1.1.5.1 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

Oracle Fusion ADFDi (Application Development Faces desktop Integration) provides an Add On plug in for Microsoft Excel (one of 4 optional elements available from the ADFDi installer).

Before first use of Excel spreadsheets which are actively linked to Fusion (example: PIM Catalog update) the installer application OracleFADesktop.exe should be downloaded within a Fusion user session and extracted to the PC desktop.

Running OracleFADesktop.exe is a one off install process for each PC desiring to use Excel to Fusion capability.

If this installer is not present on server host or the published URL is different to that expected by the UI Menu Navigator, a 404 error will be received by the user session when attempting to reference the ADFDi downloader.
