Yesterday, I searched high and low for several hours in an attempt to configure CFBuilder, for it will be able to work with Coldfusion 9 on a remote machine. I came across some posts in this forum that other users seemed to have this problem and followed the steps that Bhakti Pingale had published, titled, “Remote Server Setup- Standalone”.
So my server settings are the following:
Servername*: Windows Server
Description: Coldfusion 9 on Windows Server 2003
WebServer Port*: 80
RDS User Name: admin
RDS Password: password
Naming Port: 2910
Document Root: C:\Inetpub\wwwroot
Bhakti recommended to start adminstart.bat file that resides on the server, which I ran and when I refresh my server settings in CFBuilder, I get that “HARMLESS” message, which is ok. Also, in CFBuilder I have tested my RDS Configuration by navigating to the following:
And then I hit the 'Test Connection' button, and a popup says, “Test connection was successful.” I am able to ping my local server (windowsserver) successfully, checked to make sure that CFIDE directory reside in my Document Root as Bhakti mentioned. I checked my usernames and passwords.
I am stuck, help!

That seemed to be the problem. Its now running! Thanks Bhakti!
Fyi, I deleted my only server setting in CFBuilder, and then added a new server with a different server name and description.
And, for whoever cares, my Coldfusion Builder's 'About Adobe Coldfusion Builder' window has the following:
