E-Business Suite 12.1 and 12.2 require Forms Developer 10g and Reports Designer 10g.  Forms Developer 10g and Reports Designer 10g are part of Oracle Developer Suite 10g.  Oracle Developer Suite 10g is a 32-bit program certified with Windows Vista, 7, 8.1, and 10.

Forcing 32-bit programs to run on 64-bit Windows

Although Windows 32-bit programs will not install by default on 64-bit versions of Windows, there are three possible workarounds:

Workaround 1: You can run the Developer 10g setup.exe installer in Windows compatibility mode > Windows XP (Service Pack 2) or Windows XP (Service Pack 3).  See Section 6 in Note 277535.1.

Workaround 2: You can let Windows determine how to install it automatically via the "Program Compatibility Assistant".  See Section 6 in Note 277535.1.

Workaround 3: Install some additional patches and run the Developer 10g installer with the -ignoreSysPrereqs command line parameter.  See Note 1292919.1 for more details.
