The system cannot find the file specified.

The batch file cannot be found.


It may happen because some times the version at server may be corrupted or so.

Then downlod the jinitiator.exe and version should be same as the one you have on server.

How to check the version of jinitiator on your sever?

When you login to apps and choose responsibility, you can see a appsbase.htm which starts applet,

there you right click and view source there you can see the version of jinitiator.

Download the jinitiator from the above below path

Clear Cache, delete all the temporaty files from PC

Install jinitiator in your PC and check the Oracle apps again.

It should work now.

If you still have problem, there is another tip, copy the ” identitydb.obj ” from any of your network users who are using the same Oracle application and paste in your “Oracle” folder where jinitiator is installed the typical path is like c:\program files\oracle\identitydb.obj
