    CFBuilder Beta 3 Mac Installer Problem


      This may be a bit premature and it could very well be an issue with my computer, or more likely PEBKAC, but I wanted to just get it out there and hopefully have a place for others experiencing my issue to find the solution they are looking for.


      I've done the following to experience my issue:


      1. Download CFBuilder Beta 3 for mac from Adobe Labs
      2. Unzipp the archive (filename: coldfusionbuilder_b3_install_mac_121709.zip)
      3. Run the installer (filename: cfbuilder_install)
      4. Enter password for OS X authentication
      5. ...and 5-7 seconds later...see [PROBLEM] below



      The installer icon simply dissapears from the Dock never to be seen or heard from again.  I have also tried installing via command prompt ($ ./cfbuilder_install.app/Contents/MacOS/cfbuilder_install) to no avail.



      The installer should go through the normal installation process on OS X and ultimately install CFBuilder Beta 3 Standalone on my 17" MacBook Pro (May 2008) with OS X Snow Leopard 10.6.2.

          Are you by any chance trying to install from a shared directory? If so move to another temp directory and install from there. Else you can look for the log under this folder and paste here:

            Thank you for your response, Vinu.  There is no log file that is created in that location.  I did, however, find this:




            I have attached it to this message.  I appreciate your assistance.




            From what I can tell right now, it looks like java is jacked up on my machine.  Anytime I try to run "java -version" or try to access my keystore I get "Trace/BPT trap" as my output and a crash log is added in the same location as where the attached crash log is.  I recently updated JVM for Mac to Update 1 via Apple Software Update a couple of weeks ago.  I have JDK 1.5 (32-bit), JDK 1.5 (64-bit), JDK 1.6 (32-bit), and JDK 1.6 (64-bit) installed so...


            What is even more strange for me is that I am able to install Beta 2 without issues.  It's installed in under 20 seconds.

              I know for a fact that my JVM was currupted some how which was the cause of my issue.  Given the lack of time to troubleshoot this coupled with the fact that Beta 2 expires on Jan 1, 2010 I decided to wipe my HDD and reinstall Snow Leopard.  All works as expected now.  I noticed that I now only have Java 1.6 (32-bit) and Java 1.6 (64-bit) installed after doing this.  And finally, I have not yet installed the JVM for Mac Update 1 yet.  I'd be curious what would happen if I tried it after updating Java.  Another day.  :-)

                Thanks for the confirmation. Mac Update 1 with JDK 6 should work well as

                expected. Let me know if you face any issues.
