I am attempting to install 64-bit ColdFusion 9 on Windows 7. Early on in the process (just after the EULA agreement and in the "Configure Installer" step), I get a warning screen that reads "Warning: MDAC components are not 2.6 sp2 or higher".
It provides an address at which I should be able to download the "most recent version of the MDAC components": http://www.microsoft.com/data/download.htm
, but the page no longer exists.
Now I can bypass this for the time being and move on to the "Configure ColdFusion" step. Once here I am expecting to see an option to configure ColdFusion to use will all my sites running under IIS but it is unavailable. I can only choose to configure a web server connector, or select "Built-in web server"
I was sure to install IIS 7 before attempting my ColdFusion installation so I am not sure why the option is missing. I had also read that ColdFusion needs IIS 6 compatibility to be installed so I made sure to do that as well.
In the end if I continue to install and let it finish, it tells me the installation completed with errors, and of course I can't even load the administrator page.
What am I missing here?
