In IIS right click on the web site entry and cilck all tasks, create virtual directory.

In CF use Administrator.

Hi again,

same answer as in http://www.experts-exchange.com/Web/WebDevSoftware/ColdFusion/Q_20788004.html:

You can create a folder "alias" by editing the file [CF_DIR]\wwwroot\WEB-INF\jrun-web.xml:
Add this between the <jrun-web-app> tags:

<virtual-mapping>
    <resource-path>/mymarket</resource-path>
    <system-path>[CF_DIR]/wwwroot/artstore</system-path>
</virtual-mapping>

[CF_DIR] is the directory where CF MX is located. ON Windows, be sure to include drive letter and to use forward slashes!

HTH,

Chris

Hi,

are the ppl. getting an error msg? What does it say?

With developer version you can only request pages from the machine where CF is installed. The only legal way around it is to buy a license, because then you get a valid serial number and your server will be "Pro" or "Enterprise"... whatever you buy.

HTH,

Chris

Hi,

in your mapping you forgot the last letter in the system path... IERROR instead of IERRORs. ;-)

HTH,

Chris
