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

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

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
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.
