Having difficulties getting CF2023 installed on Windows.
Running installer as administrator the GUI ends up displaying:
After closing that there is a note to start the CF service then browse port 8500.
Services.msc does not have a ColdFusion service to start.
CMD prompt cfstart - works ok.
CFadmin after that works ok.
Wondering should I add my own service with Windows SC command?
Please note CF2023 install and service difficulties went away after first installing Visual C++ Redistributable then performing CF installation.
Hope that may help others, Carl.
Can't seem to find any language changes or performance improvements documented... are there?
Thanks for reaching out, @Tim2842955474bi
As far as language changes are concerned, we've fixed some bugs that are listed in Bug fixes.
We've also added support for Avro and Protocol Buffer serialization and deserialization. For more information, see the following docs:
As far as performance improvements are concerned, we've ensured that the performance of CF 2023 is at par with that of Cf 2021.
Please post if there are more queries.
What about the VS Code extension? It looks like a new version hasn't been released. I therefore can't set the CFML Dictionary Version to 2023 in VSC and can't code against 2023 server.
There was a newer beta version of the VSC extension during the beta for 2023 server, whatever happened to that?
Until they may respond to or resolve this, you absolutely can "code against 2023 server". As you may know, there's no connection between the cf version you run and the code you can edit in the editor. You'll lack the code insight features, sure. And you may be referring to that, but again one CAN "code against 2023 server" with that original vscode extension, or even the old cf2018 cf builder, or indeed any editor.
I'd just use any previous version of this extension. If you have the 2023 beta one, use that. If you have the one for 2018, use that. There aren't that many changes in CFML in the last few versions.
