Are you getting the following error when configuring the IIS8 connector for CF10 on Windows Server 2012 or Windows 8?

"Version 8.0 is installed. Supported versions are 4.x, 5.x, 6.x, 7x"

We have some additional guidance that should help you work around it.

1) Please make sure that you are using correct Windows 2012 Server/Windows 8 supported ColdFusion 10 installer (The updated full ColdFusion 10 Installers)

MD5s of the full installer should be as follows:

For Win 64-bit MD5 --> ef74d583a8d069c7138a4ea8da9c5359

For Win 32-Bit MD5 --> ca9363a0a3817533436238b477b88792

2) You can opt to configure IIS 8 while installing or after installation.

     Installer has in-built support for IIS 8 on Win 8/Win 2012.

3) By all means install the latest CF10 updates, but do not apply updates older than Update 8. If you apply any of the older updates like update 7 or 6, you will likely see the following error while trying to run the IIS 8 web server connector:

"Version 8.0 is installed. Supported versions are 4.x, 5.x, 6.x, 7x

4) If all the above steps have been followed and if you are still getting the error, please verify that update 8 is installed properly by checking the log file under \cfusion\hf-updates\hf-10- 00008\Adobe_ColdFusion_10_Update_8*.log

And MD5  of the connector jar located at <CF10_Install_Home>\cfusion\runtime\lib\wsconfig.jar should be

     a) If you have applied Update 8 -> ba8f8c8bcd34c266faa0031107bbf948.

     b) If you have NOT applied any Updates -> 35cc2f630325506081f3b29d41e50c3c

Please contact Adobe support if you require further assistance.
