So I just got Vista, and of course, it's been one pain after another. I'm installing a developer copy of CF on my machine, running IIS 7, and the install went perfectly, until I tried to run that CF Administrator. I get the following error: =================================================== Description: The page you are requesting cannot be served because of the Multipurpose Internet Mail Extensions (MIME) map policy that is configured on the Web server. The page you requested has a file name extension that is not recognized, and is not allowed. Error Code: 0x80070032 Notification: ExecuteRequestHandler Module: StaticFileModule Requested URL: http://localhost:80/CFIDE/administrator/index.cfm Physical Path: C:\inetpub\wwwroot\CFIDE\administrator\index.cfm Logon User: Anonymous Logon Method: Anonymous Handler: StaticFile Most likely causes: It is possible that a handler mapping is missing. By default, the static file handler processes all content. The feature you are trying to use may not be installed. The appropriate MIME map is not enabled for the Web site or application. (Warning: Do not create a MIME map for content that users should not download, such as .ASPX pages or .config files.) =================================================== Of course it's the MIME type. That much I've figured out. I'm not much of an admin whiz, but when I went into the IIS administrator and looked up MIME types, there were no references to .cfm page, or .cfc pages. I googled a bit and was able to find solutions for IIS 6, but nothing for IIS 7. In the IIS admin, I can clearly see that it's relatively easy to add a MIME type, and it's pretty self explanatory, but the part I'm lacking is the actual MIME type string. I tried "application/octet-stream" but that just prompted me to download the page. Does anybody have the MIME type handy? I've installed it under IIS so it's in Inetpub/wwwroot/CFIDE if that helps any. Like I said, I'm not really familiar with the admin workings of IIS and I regret that I don't have more experience with it, but it's always "just worked" and I've never really had to mess with IIS very much. Any help is greatly appreciated, even if it's just a url pointing me to the right solution. Thanks in advance...

From your error message: "Warning: Do not create a MIME map for content that users should not download, such as .ASPX pages or .config files." You don't want CFML pages to be downloaded directly. Instead, you want IIS 7 to know to send requests for CF pages to the CF server for handling. http://thefalken.livejournal.com/45759.html Dave Watts, CTO, Fig Leaf Software http://www.figleaf.com/ Fig Leaf Software provides the highest caliber vendor-authorized instruction at our training centers in Washington DC, Atlanta, Chicago, Baltimore, Northern Virginia, or on-site at your location.

Ahh... thanks for pointing that out... > You don't want CFML pages to be downloaded directly.

If I have any problems or questions, I'll let you know. It's odd that there's no mention of this on Adobe's web site... that was the first place I went, but there was nothing I could find on IIS7 and Vista in the CF Support knowledgebase... Again, thanks much.

Well, that certainly would explain it. Dave, it worked like a charm. Got it up and running. You're a life saver. Is it the same sort of convoluted setup to run CF8 on Vista as well? Or would you just set that up as a standalone server? Am I correct in assuming that this series of steps was really because I was running CF under IIS, and if I installed CF8 using the standalone server setting, using the wwwroot in the ColdFusionMX folder instead of the Inetpub/wwwroot I wouldn't have to go thru these steps? Only reason I ask is because I was considering trying to get the beta running on the same machine, and try to set up Eclipse to give myself an opportunity to try and move from DW to Eclipse with CF8, and now I'm a little gunshy about trying it. I was thinking it'd be a nice time to try and move from CF7 with Dreamweaver to CF8 with Eclipse, but I wanted to maintain my ability to quickly work and deploy pages for sites that I currently have to maintain on a daily basis. So I was hoping for a little "overlap" for the next month or two... Is that possible?

I would imagine so, but haven't tried yet myself. > Only reason I ask is because I was considering trying to get > the beta running on the same machine There's no reason you have to use IIS for CF 8. The easiest thing would be to install CF 8 with the built-in JRun web server. Alternatively, you could create another IIS virtual server and hook CF 8 up to that. Ideally, if you're running CF 7 and 8 on the same machine, you'd install them as two JRun instances within the same JRun server configuration, but that frankly would be somewhat painful if you didn't already have the multiserver version installed.

Awesome Dave. Thanks for the reply. That's what I was hoping to be able to do. Then, when I get Eclipse running, I'll just point my "New Projects" to the "ColdFusion8/wwwroot" folder, right? If I'm understanding this correctly (and I'm sorry to drift from "IIS on Vista" over to "How to start with Eclipse" but for me this is all related) Eclipse "projects" are somewhat analogous to Dreamweaver's "sites"?

Yes, I think that should work. Honestly, I don't use Eclipse for CF generally, although I'll probably start doing so more since I'm using Eclipse for LiveCycle and Flex. > If I'm understanding this correctly (and I'm sorry to drift > from "IIS on Vista" over to "How to start with Eclipse" but > for me this is all related) Eclipse "projects" are somewhat > analogous to Dreamweaver's "sites"?
