Ever landed into a situation, where the installation or instance creation was successful, but ColdFusion Service was not created on windows. Don’t, panic. Here is the tweak.
- Launch Command prompt as Administrator
- Run this command sc create “ColdFusion 11 Application Server” binPath= C:\ColdFusion11\cfusion\bin\coldfusionsvc.exe start= auto DisplayName= “ColdFusion 11 Application Server”
Now you will be able to locate your instance through the Windows Services Manager. For ColdFusion 10, replace “11” with “10” in the above command. For specific instance the instance name should be appended. Say the instance name is CF11, then the command changes to
sc create “ColdFusion 11 Application Server CF11” binPath= C:\ColdFusion11\CF11\bin\coldfusionsvc.exe start= auto DisplayName= “ColdFusion 11 Application Server CF11”
