Hello, we are trying to install ColdFusion-702.win of Jan 07,
2007 on to XP O/S machines.
1 = the firewall & virus checker has been turned off
2 = we have installed and uninstalled IIS, which works
3 = we have installed and uninstalled ColdFusion and rebooted
the computer, which has the following errors;
Just a curious question. Have you gone into IIS and verified
that the directory in the default web site is pointing to the
correct folder or there is a virtual directory for CFIDE? And have
you changed the default page in IIS to a *.cfm page (for the
Am I remembering the port correctly? 8080 for cf's built in

I'm pretty sure JRun's default port is 8000, and I think I've

Well, the question is whether you chose, to install CF to
integrate with IIS or use CF's built-in internal web server.
Answer = we require the use of IIS for what we are doing.
That said, rather than play guessing games as to what you
did, and what port may have been chosen if you did use the internal
web server (and/or dig through XML config files to find it), here's
a simpler test:
Just use Start>Programs>Macromedia>ColdFusion MX
7>Administrator, that should show you what URL CF stored in the
Start menu shortcuts, which should be what you need. Then just use
that to point to your apps instead.
Answer = we CAN NOT open the administrator.
BTW, if you chose to integrate with IIS but had problems, and
removed it and reinstalled it AFTER installing CF, that wouldn't do
it. You need to install IIS and then CF, which if you tell it to
integrate with IIS will cause CF to make some mods to the IIS
Answer = yes we have done what you have suggested.
It smells like an IIS error. Are you sure the connector got
installed properly? Haven't used IIS in years (switched to apache)
but we were running into things like that all the time when
installing / upgrading.
Answer = we also think the problem we are having is an IIS
