Hello,

I am new to coldfusion, just got home the software CD and a book. When i am installing Coldfusion in my home system, Windows XP Professional...i first installed with standalone server...and i got an error of page not found when i opened http://localhost/CFIDE/administrator/index.cfm. Later i uninstalled and again tried to install IIS and then coldfusion...But this time too i get the same error. Can someone help me with this problem. Please mail me to july_tweety@yahoo.com. Any help is appreciated. Thanks

Technically you don't need an IIS to run coldfusion mx... On my personnal computer I don't have an IIS running, but I use it for my testing computer running coldfusion mx and ms sql 2000. Haven't had any problems at all with coldfusion
Did you have any errors during the installation? If you have an IIS running you may want to set the IP instead of "localhost" so... http://123.456.789.012/CFIDE/administrator/index.cfm 

Can you tell me more abut the problem, what the error message says, or is it the "page not found" message? And make sure you set up CFMX with all the default settings, you don't need to change anything when installing it on you local computer, it's pretty much all set for ya...

lemme know

1. what is ur default web server [cold fusion default / IIS / apache]
2. chk the mappings u have for .cfm files in ur web server
    1. go to ur IIS - > web site
    2. right click on properties
    3. click on configuration
    4. chk if u can see the listing for .cfm / .cfc /  .cfml
    5. if u cant  - then click on add & add the above extension one by one & enter executable as "C:\CFusionMX\runtime\lib\wsconfig\1\jrun.dll"

When you install with standalone server you need to specify the port to access it on in the URL.  If you installed using the standalone web server bundled with MX, it's 8500

SO you would need to change
http://localhost/CFIDE/administrator/index.cfm
to
http://localhost:8500/CFIDE/administrator/index.cfm


WHen you did the second install did you reboot after installing IIS?

WHen you installed did it specifically say install for IIS?
