ColdFusion 10 - CFGRID Migrations Problems -- HELP!! HELP !!!!

Hi Experts,
Heeeeeeeeellllllllllllllllllllllpppppppppp!!!

We developed a few pages using CFGRID under Coldfusion 8 and we are now checking out our application on a different server using ColdFusion 10.

Overall Problem:  The grid (in 10) doesn't have the customization that I had in CF8 using CSS and JavaScript overrides.


Fundamental Question:
I see the the CF admin for v10 has the "Default ScriptSrc Directory" set to :
/CFIDE/scripts/

This is outside out our IIS site definitions - but somehow it still renders a populated grid?  In V8 we have it as
/scripts
and we copy the "CFIDE/script folder to the root of each site.

When I made this change in CF10 (and restarted CF), the HTML looked correct but but nothing was rendered at all?

So let's start with this.  What is happening here?

Thanks in advance,
hefterr

Is the CFIDE folder setup as a virtual folder under the website in IIS? I am assuming this is a Windows Server. If it is try deleting that virtual folder so it can use the real one you copied.

Hi RickEpnet,
You are correct on both counts:
1)  We are using IIS (new Windows 2012 server with IIS6)

2)  The new server (CF 10)  does have CFIDE define as a virtual directory in the root!  Thanks for that.  It was a bit new to me.  

3)  I renamed my copied over script file (script_v10) as I assumed that was the way to go (and use the virtual CFIDE files).  Still the same results.

Q:  If it makes no difference in approach, I will close this question (and give you the points).  And then open a new question with the actual code snippets to get to the details of what is no longer working (CSS and JavaScript overrides).

Q:  I vaguely remember a hotfix in CF 8 where CSS overrides were not processed last so they were ignored.  I assume this is OK in CF10?

I do not think it will make any difference. CF10 has a whole new way (much easier) of doing update I would do them all before going into production. I do not recall the hotfix you are referring to but I would imagine was fixed in CF9
