Issue:

For a new install of 12.1 Web Viewer for Windows - Administration - Repository - Create - the mandatory values in the "repository type" drop-down list box are not appearing / can not be selected. The contents remain set to "Select Option..." The repository type tool tip works, but the drop down list is not populated.

Cause:

The problem may be with the Windows install using the System Level, External configuration. The WVProfile.properties should have been copied from the application folder to the CAOMWV12_HOME folder before the config tool is run. 

Resolution:

Stop the WAS (Tomcat or WebSphere), copy the WVProfile.properties file (from the application folder to the CAOMWV12_HOME folder), run the config tool, restart the WAS and then test. The problem should now be resolved.

Additional Information:

The same symptom can be seen from Administration - Role - Create, in the "Role type" drop down list box.
