I installed a Standard License number to my Development environment to test out features.

Now that I've done this, how do I revert back to Developer Edition?

You should be able to do this by going to C:\ColdFusion2810\cfusion\lib\license.properties and changing the entries there as needed. Specifically, replace the sn value with Developer:

sn=Developer

You'll need to stop CF, make your change, then restart it again. Of course, make sure you keep a backup before changing it manually.

The license key is stored in the <cfinstallfolder>/cfusion/lib/license.properties file.  Just delete the value that follows "sn=", and restart your server.

Thanks Dave and Carl. I changed it to Developer and restarted the server and it worked. Incidentally, I went back into the properties file and noticed that the line read "sn=". In other words, the "Developer" value was removed.
