Unable to run CF8 from CFEclipse

I have cfeclipse installed as well as CF8 dev. edition running. When I create a .cfm page and try to run it from inside cfeclipse (rt. click on file, run as, and then use internal web server), the page does not display any cfoutput. I tried outputting the date/time but the function itself displays like so: #Now()#. I checked to make sure the cf services are all running and they are. What am I missing and what do I do to fix it?

I suspect that what is happening is eclipse is simply referencing your template (.cfm) file as a file rather than through a web server. eg. file://path/to/your/template.cfm rather than http://localhost/path/template.cfm

To be honest I never run my code through eclipse.  Its easy to hit refresh on a browser window that I already have open after I've saved an update to template or component.

That said, you probably need to check that the web browser setting in eclipse to make sure that it is opening a URL (http://) rather than a file path (file://). CFEclipse has a "Edit URL" menu option when you right click on a project - perhaps this needs setting?

uninstalled and reinstalled coldfusion and that seemed to resolve the issue.
