Error in ColdFusion (Open BlueDragon) CFScript  Badly formatted tag

I have a hosting site that has added 'ColdFusion' support to my site.  I found out that it is not the Adobe CF but Open BlueDragon.  I put together a simple page to see how well BD works as I've not used it before.  I get an error on this code and the hosting service has not been responsive to see if they have a bad install or is it just something bad on my part.  I can run this page on other true Adobe CF sites and it works.  
Am I missing something obvious?

Any thoughts?

Here is the error:
Bad File Exception
Request	/junk/cfScriptTest.cfm

Type	Template
Message	Badly formatted tag
Position	Line=4; Column=16
Detail	Problem occurred while parsing: Syntax error at line 2, column 16. Encountered: "=" after : "<"

replace <= with LTE and replace x++ with x=x+1

Wow that worked!  I don't understand why as the BD manualOpenBdManual show this as its example
// Looping Simple
for ( x=1; x <= 5; x++ ){
  WriteOutput( x );
}

Using your LTE and x=x+1 also worked on my Adobe CF servers.
Thanks.  Just curous ... do you think it is a version of Blue Dragon issue?

It could be.

Which version of BD are you using?

>> It could be.

That'd make sense as even ACF didn't support the <= and ++ syntax until version 8 I think.  With 7 and earlier you still have to use the LTE and x = x + 1 syntax.
