Instructions for Windows Users using Internet Explorer

The Windows workstation configuration for Banner 7 users should include the Java Plug-in runtime to support the running of the Oracle forms. The required plug-in is Java Runtime Environment (JRE) Version 6.0 Update x (x being the most current version on the site).

For workstations that do not have the Java plug-in loaded, the first time you log in to Banner 7, the Web browser will notify you that the plug-in is required and may walk you through the steps for loading the necessary plug-in. This document is developed to help users load the plug-in.

1. Go to the Banner 7 log in page:

  • If your workstation already has the required Java plug-in (J2SE Runtime Environment 6.0) loaded, the Banner log in page will display and you will be able to enter the system. You will not need to complete the following steps.
  • If your workstation does NOT have the necessary Java plug-in you will receive the alert that ActiveX control is required. Proceed with the following installation instructions.
