WEB.SHOW_DOCUMENT doesn't work on XP SP2

I have come to realise that the command WEB.SHOW_DOCUMENT works on Windows 2000, but not on Windows XP SP2. I have just finished reading a lengthy document by Oracle about running reports from a form, but they don't say what to do about this problem,

I have come to realise that the command WEB.SHOW_DOCUMENT works on Windows 2000, but not on Windows XP SP2. I have just finished reading a lengthy document by Oracle about running reports from a form, but they don't say what to do about this problem, or even acknowledge that there is a problem. I have found a way around it, but it's a real pain in the butt.... Can anyone advise me on how to get WEB.SHOW_DOCUMENT to work properly on XP? When I run the command, I get no error, but nothing happens. It's the same at home and at college, and we all use XP SP2.
thx

The problems you are experiencing have little to do with the Oracle product. They are the result of security changes put in place by Microsoft. In short, only common net protocols can be assured to work with Forms WEB.SHOW calls. For example: HTTP, HTTPS, FTP, etc. You can no longer use JAVASCRIPT, FILE, etc. If you want to gain access to resources on the client machine you will need to add a signed Java Bean to your form. If you don't know how to write Java code, you can use WebUtil (downloadable from OTN):
