ColdFusion MX Installation Tip

ColdFusion creates a folder named /cfide/installers under the ColdFusion web root. This folder contains two files, one is the ColdFusion Report Builder installer, and the other is Macromedia Extension file (MXP) used to install the ColdFusion MX 7 extensions for Dreamweaver MX 2004.
If you are installing ColdFusion MX 7 on a shared development server, you’ll want to run these two installers from each developer workstation.

    The /cfide/installers and files were not created when I installed the Developer addition last night. Is there a seperate download somewhere that can be used?

    Another tip from me 🙂
    Before installing CF, set your server/computer date 3 years later and install CF in trial mode.
    After installation, get date back to original.
    UPPPS you have a working CF version for next 3 years.
    WAAAAV!!! 🙂
