ColdFusion 11 Installers refreshed-Has fix for Server fails to start on enabling J2EE Session variables and Installation on Japanese OS
Administrator | Adobe ColdFusion | Adobe ColdFusion 11 | Announcements | Application Server | ColdFusion | Docs | General | Hotfix | Session Management | Updates
During first week of December 2014, we had released Full installers for ColdFusion 11 with update 3 in-built. The build number was 11,0,3,292480.
There were two issues with the build that was released(Full Installers only).
1) After Enabling J2EE Session Variables server hangs on restart/start.
2)On Japanese OSes, installer doesn't recognize the Japanese locale.
If you have applied the update 3 through Hotfix, these 2 issues won't arise for you. And also, #1 is not applicable for J2EE deployments done as EAR or WAR.
These two issues are fixed and we have refreshed the Full installers this week. The build number is: 11,0,3,292866
If you have come across #1, either you can download and use the new installer or apply the workaround on your existing server itself.
The workaround is:
Open the xml file C:\ColdFusion11\cfusion\runtime\conf\context.xml (Change it as per your installation path)
and uncomment the tag: <Manager pathname="" />
<Manager pathname="" />
Change it to:
<Manager pathname="" />
If you have come across #2, you have to download and install.

Many of you are looking for a central location to find the full list of ColdFusion Updaters. We try to keep these updated for the core supported versions with links to the latest released updaters. These are a good place to look for the full list of updaters available on each version along with a download link to the .jar file.
Additional updates for ColdFusion server and Builder:
Administrator | Updates
One of the fix which is part of ColdFusion 11 Update 3 is around the hotfix update uninstall UI. Previously when you tried to unistall an installed update from Admin UI once the uninstall was started there was no way to get its status.
Now this is fixed in Update 3 and now while uninstall is under process progress status of uninstall will be shown in Admin.
Following images below best explain this improvement in the Admin update UI
Dialog to get uninstall confirmation (This was already present)
Once uninstall is in progress follwoing dailog will show various stages of uninstall
Step 1) stopping the server
Step 2) rechecking server status
Step 3) Final update uninstall status
Hope this will be helpful to all those who frequently have to use the feature.
Administrator | Adobe ColdFusion 10 | ColdFusion | Connector | General | Hotfix
We have seen that some of you have not been able to get the web server connector working after applying update 14.
We did our investigation and following is our finding.
The connector binaries of ColdFusion 10 update 14 are built on top of VC++ runtime 2012 update 4.
Installation of VC++ runtime requires admin privileges. If the ColdFusion service runs as administrator or system account, the update itself install the VC++ runtime as this account would have installation privileges.
If your ColdFusion service account is not running as administrator or system account, applying the hotfix from administrator can't install VC++ runtime and you will get "500 internal server error" after configuring the connector.
In this case, you need to manually install VC++ runtime 2012 32-bit and/or 64 bit depending on whether Web server is 32-bit or 64-bit.
You can download VC++ runtime here at:
When you install hotfix manually, administrator privileges are enforced and so the installation of VC++ runtime is automatically taken care by the updater.
Administrator | Adobe ColdFusion 11 | Hotfix | Splendor | Updates
In case you are unable to apply the update directly from the ColdFusion Admin, here are some tweaks you can try:-
Start ColdFusion from command line and apply the update
- Stop ColdFusion service or ‘ColdFusion 11 Application Server’ service.
- Launch command prompt with “Run as Administrator” feature.
- Navigate to \ColdFusion11\cfusion\bin\
- Type cfstart.bat and hit enter.
Once the server startup message appears on the prompt, navigate to ColdFusion Admin and apply the update.
Apply the update manually
Apply the “Service startup fix” first and then update 1
- In case the above two suggestions doesn’t work, then first apply the service startup hotfix hf1100-3776060 and then Update 1.
- Download the hotfix from hf1100-3776060.jar
- Place this hotfix at \ColdFusion11\cfusion\lib\updates\
- Restart the ‘ColdFusion 11 Application Service’.
- Navigate to ColdFusion Admin and apply the update.
Note: The above cases are based upon user scenarios/environments. All the other updates should be applied via the ColdFusion Administrator directly.
