Does anyone know, how to enable/register a C++ cfx tag in ColdFusion10 (Windows2008R2/IIS7.5, 32bit CF10)?
All I get is a page that tells me "You must configure your application server to enable native CFX support" and mentions some non-existing references to a ColdFusion documentation. (i.e. "For instructions, see "Configuring ColdFusion" in the "Configuring and Administering ColdFusion" book for your application server.")
seems to happen only with the x86 edition of CF10. (on maybe only x64 windows plattforms - but I don't have any 32bit Windows around to test this any furter at the moment)
When I install the x64 CF10, I can configure and use c++ CFX extensions....
Though really the only reason of still using the x86 editions of CF, is just that there are old (but still widely used) 32bit CFX tags around with no x64 counterpart, and thus the x64 of CF is no option for us.
We had to abandon the use of CFX tags when we migrated from CF5 to CF9. We found it very difficult to get the tags to be recognized or run at all and when we did finially get everything talking, we found the threading model was very different which lead to instability under load. We ended up rewriting all the CFX functionality. Much was simply rewritten using native cfc. The parts that could be cfc'ized for whatever reason were put into a stand-alone web service app that runs locally and we communicate to it via cfhttp.
