I’ve been facing this really annoying problem for quite some time now. My job revolves around developing apps using Oracle Forms Builder{#aptureLink_dzpThUVtnA}. Oracle Forms applications, uses Java applets to run inside any browser, on most platforms. Here’s the kink – Oracle Forms applications by default uses Oracle’s{#aptureLink_5VcUe7aCHj} jInitiator{#aptureLink_uyXnIMpqB7} which is a JVM made by Oracle and allows a web enabled Oracle Forms client application to be run inside a web browser.

As much as I hate using Internet Explorer – I have to depend on it as the my app depends on other components which are designed on run on Internet Explorer only 😐 

Till now I’ve been using Mozilla Firefox, but now the situation demands that I needed to use Internet Explorer. And when I launched Internet Explorer – Ka boom! Internet Explorer crashes. Did few things, such as disabling all addons, getting rid of Sun’s JVM et al, but made no difference.


Finally, I came across a solution(or rather a workaround) – replace the jvm.dll in jinitiator directory with that present in Sun’s JRE 1.6. If you don’t want to install the whole bundle – just click here{#aptureLink_xEBjE1aaLa}(jvm.dll, 2.2 MB), I’ve uploaded just the jvm.dll file, rename the original jvm.dll (present in jinitiator/bin/hotspot directory) to, say jvm.dll.old, and replace it with the one given in the above link. Restart the browser, IE shouldn’t crash anymore.
