Installing CF10, in Configuration and Settings Migration Wizard, in browserhttp://,


ColdFusion has been successfully installed. This wizard will guide you through the remaining server configuration steps and, if applicable, migrate settings from a previous version of ColdFusion.

To guarantee the security of your server, please enter your ColdFusion Administrator password.

- getting error: Invalid Password. It won't take the password I provided in previous "Set Admin password" screen. Help?

    Hi Oleg,


    Can you try this in a different browser instead of IE, if that doesn't help then try below steps.


    Can you please go to the ColdFusion 10 installed directory




    There is a batch file name "passwordreset.bat" just double click on it, that will launch a command prompt select the option 1 and then type your new password.


    try again and let me know if that doesn't help.

    I am having the issue with the URL on the Configuration ans Setting Migration Wizard pointing to the following URL:



    Receiving a message:


    HTTP Error 404.0 - Not Found

    The resource you are looking for has been removed, had its name changed, or is temporarily unavailable.


    The following is the information in the error page:


    ModuleIIS Web Core
    Error Code0x80070002
    Requested URLhttp://localhost:80/jakarta/isapi_redirect.dll
    Physical PathD:\ColdFusion10\cfusion\wwwroot\jakarta\isapi_redirect.dll
    Logon MethodAnonymous
    Logon UserAnonymous


    I could not find a directory called jakarta.


    Any ideas?

    Hi Mike,


    Can you please check IIS Manager, under your site, if there is a virtual directory named jakarta, if not then please add the virtual directory name jakarta in your site and point it to the connector folder "C:\ColdFusion10\config\wsconfig\1".

    Though when you create the connector, it will add the virtual directory by itself however it you removed it then you have to add the jarkata.


    Hope this helps.
