.cfm files are "Cold Fusion Markup" files and in windows you need to
designate a default program to open them. I don't use Apple MACs so I
shall leave this to Ben Pleysier to help you how to create a default
program to open these files.
Why can't you start using a Windows System that has good customer
support around here and on Microsoft forums
... in the Finder I can right click on a .cfm file and open it by designating DWCC, the problem is when I go to open a file via FTP connection through Dreamweaver's File Window (F8) by double clicking it, Dreamweaver simply doesn't want to open the .cfm file (nor .cfc files either).
I've been done with Microsoft products for many years now, and haven't looked back ;-)
DWCC removed ColdFusion support. You're supposed to get the Adobe CF Builder now.
You "can" still open CF files, but it takes a little more effort...
Thanks Jon, that did the trick.
Since CFBuilder is still too buggy and slow (and expensive, in addition to my Creative Cloud subscription) I'll be using DW until something better comes along.
this is such a bad decision by adobe... I'm a website designer/business owner, not a programmer. I don't have time to learn another adobe software tool when I've been using DW for 14 years. I may discontinue my CC subscription and downgrade to an older version that I own.
I agree, not a good move to "remove" CF support, but even though Jon Fritz II says Adobe removed support, the CF tag library is still supported, at least in Code view....
If you don't want to add the Legacy Extension or get the paid extensions from DMXZone, and you're a CC subscriber, you can have both DWCS6 (with database functionality by default) and DWCC installed at the same time under the same subscription (no additional cost). They just don't run at the same time.
Here's how you add DWCS6 through the Creative Cloud...
Maybe if enough people request that the database features get added back, Adobe would return them to the program? It's happened with other features.
Here's the official form: https://www.adobe.com/cfusion/mmform/index.cfm?name=wishform
yes, i cant think of a better way for Adobe to close out the remaining businesses like mine that own and operate ColdFusion Servers. this maybe the final straw to go php. On with Adobe tech suppport and they're advising to rename the .cfm extention to .htm so I can work in DW. stupid or insane?!? but I would be renaming files all day as our CMS has over .cfm 500 files.
I love dmxzone... have serveral of their extensions... can you direct me to the paind extension from DMXZone? thanks in advance.
