    After installing ColdFusion 8 to Windows 2008 with IIS7 I recieve this error.

    <fieldset><legend>Error Summary</legend>

    HTTP Error 500.0 - Internal Server Error

    The page cannot be displayed because an internal server error has occurred.

    </fieldset>
    <fieldset><legend>Detailed Error Information</legend>
    Module IsapiModule
    Notification ExecuteRequestHandler
    Handler AboMapperCustom-52026
    Error Code 0x800700c1

    Physical Path C:\inetpub\wwwroot\CFIDE\administrator\

    The handler is set, isapiModule enabled, I have even tried using credentials instead of pass-through authentication. I am not doing anything special here, what am I missing? Any help would be IMMENSLY appreciated.

    The cold-fusion ISAPI is probably 32-bit only, so you probably need to run IIS in 32-bit mode

    %windir%\system32\inetsrv\appcmd.exe set config -section:system.applicationHost/applicationPools -[name='DefaultAppPool'].enable32BitAppOnWin64:true

    Alternatively, download the 64-bit version of ColdFusion. Available for both version 8 and 9.

    I had a client that migrated to a new Windows 2008 server but still running ColdFusion 8 (32-bit) Standard Edition and this worked like a charm and saved me hours of frustration. Thanks. Now just to figure out how to get SMTP running on IIS7 (worked so easy on IIS6).

    Pardon my ignorance. New to both Windows7 Pro and IIS 7.5. Where do I run this instruction? I suspect it is the answer to my problem. Running 32-bit CF8 (registered copy) on 64-bit Win 7 Pro. Have IIS 7.5 running.

    Hello @ shaas5,

    Have you looked at http://learn.iis.net/page.aspx/114/getting-started-with-appcmdexe/ 

    IIS Net Library guide for using appcmd ?

    If you start with an "Elevated Command Prompt" from the "Task Bar" http://forums.iis.net/p/1178151/1981859.aspx#1981859 thread

    check "How-to-Geeks" or the "Seven Forums" for how to create the Short-Cut and Pin to the "Task Bar".

    You can change directory cd to the %systemroot%\system32\inetsrv\APPCMD and run the command.

    If you need help with appcmd %systemroot%\system32\inetsrv\APPCMD /? displays help and examples.

    Fresh install of Cold Fusion 9.0.1 x64 on my 2008R2 system.  When I change my application pool from "Network Service" to "ApplicationPoolIdentity" then Cold Fusion would operate just fine.  I had to make this change to even finish the installation correctly.  I would get the error when it would launch the admin to complete the server configuration.  Hope that this helps.
