ColdFusion 10 System Requirements

Hi,
I develop at home and use a local version of CF 8.  I have 2 machines : Vista Home Premium and Windows 7 Home Premium.

OK.  We just migrated our server over to CF 10.  It seems from Adobe that I have to have :
Windows Vista® (Business, Ultimate, or Enterprise) with Service Pack 2; or Windows 7 (Professional, Ultimate, or Enterprise) with Service Pack 1

Tell me this is not true as I have to now upgrade my operating system?  Did anyone else run in to this?  This looks like a big effort for the development edition.  Isn't there a CF 10 lite or something?

I guess I can just stick with CF 8 locally and test on the server if I use a CF10 feature?

Thoughts?

Thanks,
hefterr

FWIW, these guys say the same. Home Premium isn't supported but should install fine.  If it doesn't it's probably something in your environ (like corrupted file, missing service pack, firewall or a/v blocking, etc...)

I'm not sure I'd believe that ... They don't mention Home Premium in the CF9 requirements either, but it installed fine on my Win7 Home Premium box.  If it's just a dev box, you might just go ahead and try it ..

Hi _agx_,
If it's just a dev box, you might just go ahead and try it ..

My operating system on my Vista box may be unstable but I tried launching the *.exe and it just doesn't do anything?  If I try it with the CF8 *.exe it launches the install??

Have a good weekend!!!

Free Tool: Port Scanner

Check which ports are open to the outside world. Helps make sure that your firewall rules are working as intended.

I don't know anything about Vista.  Is yours running SP2?  Also, are you sure the installer's not corrupted and is the right bitness (for lack of a better word) ie 32/64bit.

I'd try it on your Win 7 machine.

Yeah - it does start to install on my Windows 7 machine.  I did download the right "bitness" (32 bit).  What do I do about a "corrupt installer"?  It is odd, as it doesn't give any message - just stops running.

[Edit]
Oh, I'm running 64 bit.  But I'd still be surprised if it made a difference..

However service pack level might.. What's your service pack level on those machines?  

They used to give an MD5 value to verify the file validity. If they still do that, check it first. If it's corrupt, re-download.  Otherwise, check the installer logs. They usually give some clues.

Also make sure it's not a firewall/anti-virus blocking problem.
