Incorrect Forms builder program is invoked following an upgrade to R12

  • ERP System: Oracle
  • MarkView Version: 6.5 and higher


  • When the MarkView Forms installer is run after upgrading Oracle EBS from 11i to R12, an error is encountered when the installer attempts to build the form. In the installer-debug.log file, an error similar to the following may be seen
    Caused by: Cannot run program "f60gen" (in directory
    "/<the_path_to_R12_forms>/US"): error=2, No such file or directory
Note-Icon.png Note that the form builder program being called is the 11i version "f60gen" rather than the R12 version "frmcmp".

Known Causes

  • The MarkView installer will check to see if the 11i environment variable $FORMS60_PATH is set and if so, will assume an 11i envronment and therefore try to invoke the f60gen form builder program. This behavior may occur even if the R12 environment variable FORMS_PATH has also been set.


  • To ensure that the installer invokes the correct form builder program, unset the 11i environment variable $FORMS60_PATH and set the R12 environment variable $FORMS_PATH
