Fixing IE 8 Crashes For JInitiator In Win7.

The IE 8 was crashing when launching oracle applications forms . The solution is to replace jvm.dll in JInitiator directory with that present in Sun's JRE 1.6.

1. First download the correct version of JInitiator while launching to forms which in my case
2. Install JRE 1.6 in your machine.
3. Rename the jvm.dll to jvm.dll.orgi in 'C:\Program Files\Oracle\JInitiator\bin\hotspot'.
4. Move the jvm.dll from 'C:\Program Files\Java\jre6\bin\client' to 'C:\Program Files\Oracle\JInitiator\bin\hotspot'.


You can also download jvm.dll for oracle forms/report compatible with its JInitiator to IE8 from here & replace the same in JInitiator directory.

IE 8.0
Make sure the following settings are corrected in IE8.0-
Tools > Internet Options > Advanced > Uncheck "Enable third-party browser extensions"
