Oracle Developer and Runtime 2000 will not run in a Parallels Virtual Machine (VM). I have been on the forums and tried all resolutions that I know without any success. Whenever the software is started the error "Oracle developer runtime 2000 has stopped working" with an app crash as description pointing to the ui.dll
- I am able to run Oracle Forms 6i in 32 bit Windows 8.1 VM but not in 64 bit Windows 8.1 VM. I can run them on a PC but not in Parallels Desktop VM. The form builder application crashes(see attached).
Incorrect keyboard layouts in Windows guest system
- Third party application (Oracle Developer, Oracle Forms, IBM personal communication software) do not properly handle custom keyboard layouts.
Windows virtual machine (or Bootcamp Windows virtual machine) should be reconfigured to use only windows built-in keyboard layout.
In Windows go to Control Panel > Language.
Click on Add an input method, then find US keyboard layout.
(Click on Add button after US layout is selected)
Remove United States (Apple) - Parallels.
- Restart Windows VM.
