2) How can I tell if I need the Cold Fusion updater?
You are on Version 7MX, no updater. After the update you will have a
version something like this.
Version 7,0,1,xxxx OR Version 7,0,2,xxxx
3) Which updater version do I download (1 or 2) and for which server
(MX, MX7, Special Dreamweaver version)?
You need to download and install at least updater 1 for MX 7 per the COM
instructions, updater 2 (which by default includes updater 1 IIRC) could
be even better, but has a small chance of doing something you don't want
it to. One would have to read all the tech notes and make a decision.
There is no "Special Dreamweaver" version, it is just the standard Free
Development version anybody can download and install. "Serial Number
Developer" And to turn this into a professional version all one has to
do is purchase a license number an enter it into the administration
panel. This converts a developer CF server to a Production CF server
with no other downloading or installing necessary.
4) Where do I install the updater - since I am running the Cold Fusion
Developer Server that comes with Dreamweaver, it is not located in the
default C:\CFusionMX7 directory?
Most likely the installer will figure that out. If it does not, just
provide the directory/file path to where your CF is installed when asked.
Thanks for your reply. After trying to install the updater, when I am prompted by the question, "Where is ColdFusion MX 7 located?", and I try the following directories...
(This is the location of the single server created during installation.)
(This is the installation directory for Macromedia Dreamweaver Studio 8. Each of the products in the suite have their own sub-folders within this directory.)
...I receive the following error...
This is not a valid version of ColdFusion MX 7.0.1 (Server Configuration) or it is unsupported by the updater. The installer cannot continue.
Also, a clarification - I installed Cold Fusion (or Cold Fusion was installed automatically) during the Macromedia Studio 8 installation. I own the Developer Edition, which I acquired as an inclusion to my purchased version of Macromedia Studio 8.
1) What is the root folder of my Cold Fusion MX 7 installation if I installed it from the Macromedia Studio 8 installation?
You need to provide the path all the way down to the "cfide" folder. So
you it is going to be something like this:
I can't remember if you provide the cfide folder, or the folder
containing the cfide folder. But it will tell you when you have it correct.
Also, a clarification - I installed Cold Fusion (or Cold Fusion was
installed automatically) during the Macromedia Studio 8 installation. I
own the Developer Edition, which I acquired as an inclusion to my
purchased version of Macromedia Studio 8.
Yes, I was just clarifying that the ColdFusion you received is just the
Free Developer version that anybody can download from the
www.ColdFusion.com | www.adobe.com\coldfusion site. They just bundled
the download on your DreamWeaver installation to make it handy. This
Developer version has been free to anybody for several years now.
The point I was trying to make is that when you are looking for updates
or whatnot on the adobe site, you just have a regular ColdFusion MX
developer edition (which is just a regular production edition waiting a
license to unlock its full potential) and all regular MX 7 upgrades,
updater's and hot-fixes are going to apply to your copy.
I am sorry. I continue to receive the same error message. I tried entering the following directories...
...there is only one CFIDE folder within the two root directories mentioned in my previous posts and it is at: C:\Inetpub\wwwroot\CFIDE. Rather than to keep trying the large number of possible combinations of directories within the two root directories, is there any way you can provide me with the name of the file that the installer program is looking for? Keep in mind I have been stuck for two days now at a simple prompt asking me for the original installation directory.
Can you refresh my memory on what that prompt is asking for?
I've been updated for several weeks and just do not remember.
Fortunately my update was straight forward and without incident.
The prompt is...
Please select the root folder of your Cold Fusion MX 7 installation; for example, C:\CFusionMX7
Where is ColdFusion MX 7 located?
(Defaults to: C:\CFusionMX7)
