Cold Fusions not running on one of my machines

I have just started working with Cold Fusion MX 2004, with Dreamweaver MX 6.1.
It's working perfectly fine on one computer, but when i try to run it on the other computer, i cant get it to work.
It is calling from the Database fine, but then when i try to go to another page using a link, it says that it can not find the page requested.
I know the code is working because i have tested it on the other computer and had no problems with it.
Both machines are on XP pro, what is it about this other machine that wont run CF properly, any suggestions?
We are really stuck without it on this computer, can anyone help please?

Please clarify a few things.

"It runs fine on one computer..."  are you talking about ColdFusion in general or just the CF app you've written?

What do you mean "calling from database"?

where is the database located?  Is it on the computer that worked alright or a third computer not mentioned?  Same question with the page you tried to go to?  Do you have firewalls installed on either or both of the machines?  If so, have you tried disabling them?

I am developing the cold fusion on stand alone computers, they both have cold fusion, the database and and the programs written on there own hard drive with it acting as a server.

It all runs perfectly on the one computer, cold fusion and the apps that i have written.

Calling from the database, by that i mean that i can get the cf app to display the information from the database on the screen through a web browser.

The Database is on both hard drives. All the pages are on both computers.

I have Zone Alarm on both computers, and i have tried disabling them on both, it has no affect.

If you think you can help, any suggestions will be greatly appreciated.

Ok, so you have two computers.

Both of these computers have XP pro, ColdFusion, your CF app, d-base, and accompanying set of web pages loaded onto the hard drive.

Your goal is to use a webpage to make a database call, and display the information it returns in the web browser.  Am I correct so far?  If so let's move on and have you tell me exactly what works on one computer and what doesn't.  If not please correct me where I'm wrong.

I'm going to be point blank with you, because it's not fair to get your hopes up.  I don't know a lot about CF in particular.  But my hope is that once it's absolutely clear what's going on, it will either:

1) be something simple enough that I can point you to.
2) be something more specific that someone more knowledgable will be able to point you to.

Either way it's a help to be clear on the problem.  Details here are  a good thing.

Thanks,
Cracker

Hey,
I had this happen to me before. The version of coldfusion was the developer edition, which only allowed 1 computer (developing computer) to access the site.

Hope this helps

It's ok i have solved the problem, the dreamweaver site had not been set up correctly, so when it was calling the pages it was calling from the wrong folder.
I know it was an easy one to solve but i just wasn't looking in the right place.
