cfx_image

I have an application which uses cfx_image and runs on my production server, using coldfusion 8. No problems. However, i am now trying to get it to run on my new laptop, using the developers version of coldfusion 9.  Woops, no way will it run. The cfximage library will not load.  

I am using windows 7 (64 bit)

Thanks for any help

have you verified with the developer that cfx_image is 64bit compatible? if it's c++ dll based it will need to be

Thanks for that Sidfishes. You are right - it is c++ based and not 'upgraded' to work on 64 Bit. I think I need to convert over to using CFImage or another tag you might know off for working with images.

I'd just go with cfimage. cfx_image was written  (i think) for those who didn't have access to the cfimage tag

however, You can run 32 bit web applications on win7 64 bit if you want to maintain your existing code. You'd have to reinstall the 32 bit version of CF if  you installed the 64 bit and set up iis to allow 32 bit apps. It's not that difficult (once you know how)

I just did a post on setting up 32 bit plesk in a 64 bit environment so you can have a look at the steps involved http://sidfishes.wordpress.com/2011/09/13/installing-railotomcat-in-windows-server-2008-r2-iis-7-5-with-plesk-the-correct-way/

Just had a good look at cfimage - conversion should not be a problem. Best to get it over with and forget cfx_image !!  Very many thanks !!
