Here is some of the application.CFC code

<cfcomponent>
<cfset This.name = "OdysseyHome">
<cfset This.Sessionmanagement=true>
<cfset This.Sessiontimeout="#createtimespan(0,0,10,0)#">
<cfset This.applicationtimeout="#createtimespan(0,0,1,0)#">
<cfset  This.dns = "OdysseyRFID_com">

<cfset Request.componentPath = "OdysseyRFID_com" />

<!--- ::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::: --->
      <cffunction name="OnApplicationStart">

<cflock scope="Application"       timeout="10" >
  <cfset APPLICATION.dsn = "OdysseyRFID_com">
       <cfset application.dataGateway = createObject("component",request.componentPath & ".components.dataGateway").init(this.dns) />
      <cfset application.staticGateway = createObject("component",request.componentPath & ".components.loadstaticData").init(this.dns) />
      </cflock>
</cffunction>

If you have access to it, set up a Mapping in the CFAdmin for 'OdysseyRFID_com' and point it to the 'OdysseyRFID_com/' directory. A Mapping would definitely clear up your issue, as there is no mistake to where the mapping points to.

As far as why your component doesn't get created, could it be possible that the webroot of your 'http://xxx.xxx.xxx/' address points to  the 'OdysseyRFID_com' s parent directory, where as the domain 'alias' http://www.example.com/ points directly to the OdysseyRFID_com directory. If thats the case, then it would explain why your calls to 'OdysseyRFid_com.components.xxx' dont get picked up, try using just 'components.xxx' instead.

Hope this helps,

Thanks. The path did clear it up, but exposed another seemingly similiar issue. In addition to the subdirectoy called "components" I have another called "services". In this directory is a form called "Flashresponder.cfc". Now it cannot find that form, or directory, even though it is the same directory as the logical map in CFMX.

Services is a reserved name for a CF directory - I dont know why or when this happened, but I cam eacross it the other day. rename to service and you should be ok.

Thanks for the help. actually the problem was that IIS was resolving to the directory ...wwwroot/rfidcomposer. as soon as I removed the <cfset Request.componentPath = "OdysseyRFID_com" />  from the application cfc it started finding everything just fine.

Thanks for the help
