Windows 10 Certified with Oracle E-Business Suite

Steven Chan
Senior Director

Windows 10 logoMicrosoft Windows 10 (32-bit and 64-bit) is certified as a desktop client operating system for end-users accessing Oracle E-Business Suite, 12.1, and 12.2 with the following components.

EBS 12.1 and 12.2

  • Browsers
  • Microsoft Internet Explorer 11
  • Mozilla Firefox ESR 38
  • Chrome 44 and higher (HTML/OA Framework modules only)
  • Java client plug-ins
  • JRE 1.8.0_51 and higher
  • JRE 1.7.0_85 and higher


  • Browsers
  • Microsoft Internet Explorer 11
  • Mozilla Firefox ESR 38
  • Java client plug-ins
  • JRE 1.8.0_51 and higher
  • JRE 1.7.0_85 and higher
Later JRE 7 and 8 releases on Windows 10

Our standard policy is that all E-Business Suite customers can apply all JRE updates to end-user desktops.  This applies to Windows 10 desktops, too, for the JRE releases list above.

We test all new JRE releases in parallel with the JRE development process, so all new JRE releases are considered certified with the E-Business Suite on the same day that they're released by our Java team.   

You do not need to wait for a certification announcement before applying new JRE 7 or 8 releases to your EBS users' Windows 10 desktops.

Pending certifications 

Desktop Client/Server Products The certification of our various Client/Server products, for example JDeveloper OA Extensions, Forms Developer and Workflow Builder against Windows 10 are in progress. For a full list of products see  Recommended Set Up for Client/Server Products with Oracle E-Business Suite 11i & R12 (Note 277535.1). The certification matrix within this document will be updated as these are completed.

Microsoft Edge Browser

The certification of Microsoft Edge on Windows 10 with Oracle E-Business Suite 12.1 and 12.2 is currently in progress. There are no plans to certify this browser for Oracle E-Business Suite 11i. Oracle E-Business Suite R12 has two interfaces: a web-based (OA Framework/HTML) model for modules like iProcurement and iStore, and Oracle Forms/Java based model for our professional services modules like Oracle Financials. Microsoft Edge does not support Java and will therefore only be certified for E-Business Suite customers running web-based (HTML / OA Framework) EBS products. Running Java-based EBS products with Edge will not feasible.

Oracle's Revenue Recognition rules prohibit us from discussing certification and release dates, but you're welcome to monitor or subscribe to this blog. I'll post updates here as soon as soon as they're available.

    Are you aware of any performance issues with Oracle EBS R12 (12.1.3) and Win10 that would results in FRM-92102 errors when running Oracle Forms?

    This error is being received at random in our test environment: upon opening a form for the first time, if a session is idle for a few minutes, running a search, etc. No clear pattern on how or why this happens. Once received, the user must log out and back in again. The longest session I have maintained while running an Oracle form on a Win10 laptop was approximately 90 minutes. Typically, I will get the error within 15 to 20 minutes after opening a session (unless of course I get locked up upon opening an Oracle form window after initial sign on).

    We are in the process of testing Oracle EBS (12.1.3) on a Win10 laptop(s), using a development instance with applicable patches applied, and running IE11 and Java 8 v131. Oddly, if access the same development EBS environment on a Win7 PC, we do not receive the FRM error - the application runs as expected. Therefore, we do not feel it is an actual Network issue, despite the error message text.

    At this time, we are in the process of removing all internal applications and security settings from the Win10 laptop in order to determine what may be causing the conflict.

    Just curious if you had experienced this situation before on Windows 10 in order help us move this process along? We are unable to roll out Windows 10 as the new company standard until we stabilize the EBS environment.

    Any assistance will be appreciated.

    Hi, Joe,

    I'm sorry that you're encountering issues with this.

    We have heard reports of FRM-92102 errors with multiple Forms sessions on IE 10+JRE 1.7+EBS 12.2.3. There is a patch available for that.

    We haven't heard of similar issues with EBS 12.1.3, though. I'd like to have someone investigate this to see where the overlap is with the EBS 12.2 issue.

    Can you open a Service Request with the details of your case? Please post here or email me the SR number to me so that we can look into this.

    My apologizes for the delay. We have entered a SR for the ongoing FRM error message being received on the Window 10 devices: SR 3-16103386891.

    Since my initial contact with you, we have tried to triage the problem internally. The main effort was to remove various Corporate programs and settings from a test Windows 10 device with the hope of identifying if any one particular item was causing the conflict. Unfortunately, our results were inconclusive.

    At the same time, we also backed into our fiscal year end, so efforts were diverted to both 'closing the books' and other year end related activities.

    Again, any assistance you can provide is appreciated.

    I'm sorry that you're encountering issues with this. I am escalating this SR with Support and Development. We'll get you back on track as quickly as possible. Please monitor your SR for updates.
