ColdFusion 9 installation on Windows 7 64-bit IIS 7.5
Posted on 2011-04-22
Well, I am at my wit's end, and am so hoping someone will be able to help. I bought a new Dell laptop system about 2 months ago. It is Windows 7 Professional 64-bit with IIS 7.5. I managed to install CF 9 64-bit Developer Edition and all was working ok. After not utilizing my CF for local testing for a couple of weeks, I needed to develop and test a new application about a week ago and discovered that I can no longer access any .cfm pages. I would just get completely blank pages or HTTP 500 Internal Server Errors, depending on the mood of my browser, or even which browser I used. As things were working fine for weeks, and nothing changed on my system, that I am aware of, other than the usual automatic Windows updates, I am wondering if some update corrupted things. I decided to go through the entire process of uninstalling and reinstalling CF 9 and after the initial installation process, when it says to log into CF Administratror, I click the link to do so, and the Administrator will not load. Sometimes it just displays a blank page and when I view the source code, it displays just:
<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.0 Transitional//EN">
<META content="text/html; charset=utf-8" http-equiv=Content-Type></HEAD>
Other times the HTTP 500 Internal Server Error comes up. I have searched Adobe Forums and here, Googled at length, but cannot find anyone with the same issue, and I am getting desperate, as I now have a number of CF projects that I need to develop and test locally on my own system before deploying live. I've gone through the detailed steps of uninstalling/reinstalling that I have found online, made sure my virus program and firewall were turned off during installation, made sure IIS had the correct things configured, etc., based on info I had found online from others. If anyone here is able to help, it would be so appreciated.
