My CF2016 developer edition has decided it does not want to start (on Windows 10). I did do some MS Updates over the past few days but it did't stop immediately.

 

I am not sure if it's related to the updated, but after I did them I started to get blue screens (thanks MS), which I fixed by removing Skype, put Skype back on and no more blue screens (yet).

 

Nothing else has changed. This takes me to Windows version 2004 Build  19041.508

 

I took a look at this post (although I have enough memory), and tried a manual start

https://community.adobe.com/t5/coldfusion/windows-could-not-start-the-coldfusion-2016-application-se...

 

This is the result

I also checked the JVM.CONFIG and I have this for the JVM

java.home=C:/Program Files/Java/jdk-11.0.7

 

This path does exist.

 

Anybody have any ideas? I am somewhat lost

 

 

 

 

I may have found the problem, I see Charlie talked about the same issue https://community.adobe.com/t5/coldfusion/coldfusion-server-cf-2016-suddenly-will-not-start/td-p/9015779?page=1

 

My neo-security is indeed empty, so something must be corrupt, maybe the countless blue screens and hard shut downs that I had to make corrupted something. I'm going to pull a saved image of the computer from a backup drive and reimage it, then update, I think it'll be quicker!

PS C:\coldfusion2016\cfusion\bin>

 

I also checked the JVM.CONFIG and I have this for the JVM

java.home=C:/Program Files/Java/jdk-11.0.7

 

This path does exist.

 

Anybody have any ideas? I am somewhat lost

 

 

 

 

I may have found the problem, I see Charlie talked about the same issue https://community.adobe.com/t5/coldfusion/coldfusion-server-cf-2016-suddenly-will-not-start/td-p/9015779?page=1

 

My neo-security is indeed empty, so something must be corrupt, maybe the countless blue screens and hard shut downs that I had to make corrupted something. I'm going to pull a saved image of the computer from a backup drive and reimage it, then update, I think it'll be quicker!

Yep, that would be my suspicion, but especially since the first error within that set of log lines did indicate this :

 

Unable to initialise Security service: coldfusion.server.ServiceException: [C:\ColdFusion2016\cfusion\lib\neo-security.xml]

 

I've bolded the key part of the line, though of course cf does not. 🙂 more specifically, the rest of the line indicates:

 

WDDX packet parse error at line 1, column 1. Content is not allowed in prolog

 

And that would indeed mean some thing's wrong with the file. And yep, it would have been corrupted sometime between then and the previous time cf had been restarted, most likely if cf was killed rather than stopped (or it didn't stop gracefully when told to, like on a box reboot). 

 

Getting a working file from a backup should work. Copying one from another cf instance is less likely to, but one can open the file and vee the contemts to see if any values might somehow be specific to a given instance or file locations. 

 

I do so wish that Adobe kept more than one .bak file, for each xml. I suppose your one did not work, right? If they kept more than one, it could help in cases like this. 

 

Let us know how it goes.
