I just migrated to windows 2012 and cf11.
I'm trying to get IIS8 to show detailed error messages relating to CF errors.
I've found a lot of documentation relating to cf10 and iis7... but it looks like it all leads to dead ends and doesnt work.
Right now on any coldfusion 500 error, I am displaying:
An error occurred while executing the application. Please try again or contact the administrator.
It would be great if I could show the CF error to help me troubleshoot the migration headaches a little faster.
Did you run the Web Server Configuration Tool?
Thanks for the reply. Yes I had ran the web server configuration tool.
After some trial and error, I viewed the source of the error that we being delivered to me and it had referenced to images in a cfide folder, so that indicated to me that a CF error was being displayed and it wasnt being intercepted by IIS.
So I went back into the debugging and logging tab and fooled around with the settings a little more and it eventually started to work as I expected.
Thanks for sharing this with us. Please mark it as the correct answer.
