I am getting this incredibly annoying error, but ONLY on my production server, not on test. It only happens when I try to access a .CFC file. it happens when I try to access ANY .CFC file. Also, the /CFIDE/ directory is not available to the applications which means that none of the CFFORM validation functions work, and I'd immagine there is other deminished functionality. I'm not so worried about the /CFIDE/ directory problem, I just thought they might be related and I need to put this thing into production and this is the only thing holding me back. Also, I need to do it by tomorrow morning at 9. Please Help! Here is the error:

The system has attempted to use an undefined value, which usually indicates a programming error, either in your code or some system code.

Null Pointers are another name for undefined values.
