Install of CF9 on Windows 10

Hi - I am supporting an application on an intranet with the server using CF9/IIS. I would like to install Adobe CF9 on that. I have tried - and monitored the install as best as I can - the creating of the CFIDE directories takes almost 12 hours! but it does do it eventually.

The installer stops (as in seems to just die and I cannot see it running) but the files seem to be there. The wsconfig that is installed does not work for IIS 10 (compatible with 5,6,7 I think) and so I am unable to use that to help set up the connectors

So can anyone help in a manual setup of IIS (I am bound to IIS because the server is also IIS and want to keep it all the same if at all possible)

So any help would be appreciated. - I do know that Adobe CF9 is not officially Win10 supported - but I believe this is only the install - and so I am hoping that someone out there knows how to do the last part of the install manually

Thank for your help

Not sure if it'll work, but ... try the manual instructions here. Note, they're for IIS7 so some things may differ

Unfortunately I haven't done a manual install in a long while. The one thing I remember was stupidly installing CF 32 bit on a 64 bit windows server, and forgetting to enable 32 bit in the IIS application pool ;-)

Hi _agx_ - so can you remember the steps that you did?

My install does tno even get tot he stage of the web connector setup or even the service running. So I literally have to build it form ground up - and unless i can get a walk through it is looking doubtful

The link above is good in that it tells a lot of things - the paper is implementing multiple servers - but at least it gives me an inside to it

So if you have any information - I would appreciate it - thanks

Unfortunately no.  It sounds like you're doing a manual install of the whole shebang, not just the web connector part. I don't think I've done that since CF8, so I probably won't be of much help :/  Did you check the install log for errors?

Thanks for the replies on this - and your commiserations ;-) I esculated it up the chain and said really cant be done - and it turns out there is an old server that has been decomissioned that I can use - so rock on ...

Thanks

Sounds like a better plan, since there's a good chance it isn't compatible w/10 anyway. Though security wise upgrading to a later version or trying Lucee isn't a bad idea either ;-)
