ColdFusion 11 Installers refreshed-Has fix for Server fails to start on enabling J2EE Session variables and Installation on Japanese OS

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:ColdFusion11cfusionruntimeconfcontext.xml (Change it as per your installation path)

and uncomment the tag: <Manager pathname=”” />

Existing:

   <!–
    <Manager pathname=”” />
    –>

Change it to:

    <Manager pathname=”” />

 

If you have come across #2, you have to download and install.
