I have been working on an XP machine, with DW8 and CF
installed, no problems. Please bear with me, because my skill level
in server configurations is very basic.
In one day, I purchased a new Vista OS laptop, and then
installed Adobe CS3, with Coldfusion 7 developer download from the
CS3 seemed to install without a problem. When I went to
install the CF 7 download, it appeared to install fine. BUT, when I
go to DW now, it will not process any code that is dynamic. It
won't create any recordsets, etc. It won't even bring up the
Databases panel without giving me an error that says "Access to
temp.html was denied" or "Access to
_mmServerScript\_notes\dwsync.xml was denied".
I've very frustrated. Any ideas what has/hasn't happened?
I've tried to install the IIS server in the control panel,
but am not really sure what it does. I've also uninstalled it. And
have reinstalled/uninstalled CF several times. No luck.
I've also followed these
by Heidi to the letter, with no luck???

I have been struggling for days - literally - trying to get
CF 7 installed on a vista machine. Every time I solved one issue
(so many very informative posts on this forum) another half dozen
would pop up. After spending days on this with no concrete results,
I am finally giving up and am going to trial the CF 8 version,
which states it will run under vista.

This looks like Vista permissions problems. By default, user
don't seem to have permission to write to c:\inetpub\wwwroot
I haven't (yet) figured out how to change that (I'm very new
myself) so I simply run programs as administrator to write to
directory. Instead of just clicking on DW to start it,
Run As Administrator... Then it should be able to write to
Worked for my for Notepad :)
I'm *not* recommending this from a security point of view.
to figure out how to change the permissions on the wwwroot
so you don't need administrator access!

Well, you bought Vista... Like I say, I'm new to Vista as
whilst I dislike it less than I disliked XP, I find it more
frustrating in terms of security. That's why I normally use a
