I'm trying to install Coldfusion 2021 (trial version) on a test machine. The installation wizard is stuck on "Import Settings" with a message of "Importing your Coldfusion settings. This might take a few minutes.". It's been on the screen overnight and nothing is happening. I tried to close it, updated the adminconfig file to RunSetupWizard = True. But it goes directly to that screen. Any ideas? Please help. Thanks.
Does this test machine actually have a previous version of ColdFusion on it? If so, I'd try a test machine that doesn't have CF on it. I realize it's perfectly valid to want to install your old CF settings, but there's a lot of stuff here that could potentially cause that problem and you might spend a lot of time chasing it down.

Thanks! Let me try installing it again with the previous Coldfusion 11 services turned OFF. If that doesn't work, I will try installing it on another test server.
Suppose the test machine has an existing ColdFusion version and suppose that version is running. Then it is possible that there is file-access contention between the two ColdFusion versions. In that case, I would proceed as follows:
Thank you so much! I'll try that first thing next week. I'll keep you posted.
