I am unable to get the Cold Fusion 11 custom tag example for directory lists to work.
It compiles in Visual Studio 2013 Community [Release, x64].
But when I try to run it on my server [Windows 2008 R2 64 bit], I get "Unable to load library"
I have other tags in the same subdirectory that work so I don't THINK I have a permissions issue - but I'm not POSITIVE here.
Since it's one of Adobe's examples I don't think I have a C++ issue.
The logs aren't helpful - they tell me the library didn't load but they don't say WHY.
What's my next step?
Take a look at the document you are referencing. I'm guessing it's pretty old and is using CF5 or earlier. Since MX (CF7), I have not been successful integrating DLL's with CF and instead had to resort to either writing DLL like stuff in JAVA or writing a service app that integrates via a web service call using CFHTTP. Hopefully you understand my short-hand here...
Thanks for your answer but somehow I just don't think so.
1] The code examples ship with CF11. If they weren't going to support C++ CFX tags in CF11, they could have just excluded the samples.
2} It's covered on page 408 of the CF11 doc. Again, if it was deprecated it wouldn't be in the docs.
This is only step 1 in me moving a working, 32bit, CF7 CFX tag to CF11. I don't need the directory list tag but if I can't even get that to work...
Like I stated, I did not have any success and I worked on it for several days. If you find a solution and get it working, I would love to know how you did it. Please post your finding.
