Hi because several of you, work using developer I want to share the test I
Several years ago, I found I could skip the installation of developer 6i ,
but I was enough sane to understand that doing it in our several customer,
will carry more complications than solutions, specially because I would be
accused to be the responsible if any problem occur.

After I read this excellent paper
Install a full developer 6i installation, then create a bat setting all the
variables were created on you regedit (on windows)

I decided to retake it and tested this for severla months, and confirm you
really don't need to install deevloper 6i
You save 3 installations, 1 for the forms rumtime, 2 for the reports, and 3
for the patcch.

You could use tnsadmin to have other directory for tnsnames alias, too.

You can use runtime tools, you can use developer tools, and for other tools,
like visual studio c (for forms api) you open a dos windows map the
variables and open the application.

Is possible you could need to upgrade  c libraries if you are  using an  old
operating system like windows 98, I didn't tested that.
