(Not tested on Windows XP)
We came across a small annoyance with Oracle product Reports developer 10g. We are yet to pin point the exact reasons, however, if you are experiencing the same issue which is as elaborated below:
Start Reports Developer 10g
Flash Screen appears
Then gets automatically minimized to the taskbar (Windows 7/8/8.1), and pointing the mouse shows the preview, as in below image.
However, clicking the preview window doesn’t bring up the Reports Builder 10g to maximized mode and remains unresponsive
What has changed from the last time the software was used?
We uninstalled and re-installed Weblogic Server 10.3.6 & Forms & Reports 11g R2, which has added multiple entries into the PATH environment variable. Order of path variable and pointers towards the java libraries are very sensitive for multiple Oracle products. May this could be a problem? Not sure!
Right click the Preview window
and select “Maximize”
Once maximized, exit the reports developer. Restart to confirm the builder starts in Maximized mode next time.
We hope it helps few out there :)
