Oracle Forms Runtime 6i Patch
The SIM application was developed with a product known as Oracle Forms.
During the testing of SIM version 2.0.2 there was an issue discovered
where the application would abnormally exit intermittently after
closing or transitioning to a new form. This doesn't appear to be a
critical issue as it doesn't corrupt your data, but it can be frustrating
if it occurs frequently. This issue was traced to a bug in the Oracle
Forms product itself, rather than SIM. To ensure that the SIM v2.0.2
software runs correctly on your machine, it is highly recommended that
your version of the Oracle Forms Runtime be properly patched to patch
level 18. If you see this type of behavior in your SIM v2.0.2, then
you may want to run this patch.
