I have just done an install of CF 11 three times today and the password that is created during the install does not authenticate.  I have read several posts, some of which date back to May 2014.  Is there not a hotfix for this issue?  Certainly the recommendation for changing a browser is understood as I am using IE, but still what about the hotfix?

Try this: Navigate to the webroot of your site. Take a backup of web.config and open it with text editor (notepad etc) Comment the entry for mimeType extension of ".air" like <!--<mimeMap fileExtension=".air" mimeType="application/vnd.adobe.air-application-installer-package+zip" />--> Save the file and restart IIS. Launch CF Admin and try to login.Also try the the passwordreset.bat (C:\ColdFusion11\cfusion\bin) via command prompt (Run as Administrator)

Hi Gerald,

Did you get a chance to look at Troubleshooting ColdFusion Admin Login Issue — Adobe ColdFusion Blog?

I have.  I have changed from IE to Chrome, still get Invalid Password.  I have added .cfm in IIS as a mime type, still get Invalid Password.  I have gone back to IE, added the site as a trusted site, still get Invalid Password.  What should I try next?
