Could you please try changing the password from "passwordreset.bat" file and check?
You will have to restart the ColdFusion services after changing the password. The ODBC services will automatically register once you successfully login to the admin console.
I set the password through passwordreset.bat and still get the "Invalid Password. Please try again." message. I rebooted to make sure all services restarted and was still unsuccessful. The password on this server matches the one I set on the server on which I have the successful installation.
Is there anything in Server 2012 that would keep the login to the admin console from working by chance? Or do you have any other ideas?

This happened a few times in CF 11 and usually resolved the issue.
Thanks haxtbh! The browser settings need to be adjusted on the server. That was it.
I'm having the same issue with my CF 2016 install. What browser setting did you change to get it working?
I just discovered that changing the URL from "127.0.0.1" to "localhost" did the trick. It may not work for everyone but it worked for me.
