    Hello,

    We are trying to migrate our Windows 10g (Release 1) forms to a Linux App Server.

    When we compile the forms in Linux, deploy and then access it using the Windows clients we encounter the following types of errors and issues:

    (1) Menu title bar is below the menu items.
    (2) Form background displayed in a different color.
    (3) Button short cut keys are not displayed.
    (4) Fields with ‘bevel = none’ is displayed in white background.
    (5) All fields with drop down lists displayed as buttons.

    Have you encountered problems like this when migrating and if so what are the solutions (if any)?

    We have about 350 forms to migrate and modifying each and every form is going to take lots of time.

    Thanks and many regards,
    Rohan.

    Thanks, I read this.

    Read bad thing is there is no official Oracle procedure guide (like the app dev guide) for forms migration. I't a bit shocking since migrating is a major issue.

    There are a lot of commercial applications available which can smoothen out the migration process. PITSS.CON is one such tool that comes to mind.

    Hi Rohan,

    A lot of times the difference in a Windows based and Unix/Linux based UI issue is in the setup of the applicaiton server configuration. You may want to make sure that your environment variables an d config files are the same between the two instances.
